History

The town took its name from Jean Nicolet, a French explorer.

In March 1955, a violent[clarification needed] fire gutted its downtown area—destroying 35 commercial buildings and displacing 75 families.

Eight months later, on November 12, 1955, a landslide carried 7 acres (28,000 m2) of earth and six buildings crashing down into the river, killing three people, injuring six and causing $10 million in damages. The event was later the subject of a book by author Louis Caron entitled Le Bonhomme Sept-Heures.

Geography

It is adjacent to the city of Bécancour.

Geology

The town was established upon the sandy, unstable soil at the mouth of the Nicolet River, which makes it prone to landslides.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
