East Farnham is located within Brome-Missisquoi County, in Monteregie Region. It numbers about 500 inhabitants.
For long time, the territory of East Farnham was part of the township of Farnham.
The history of East Farnham began on March 11, 1914 when William Elwin Hall, representing East Farnham Township, tabled a petition to the council of mayors requesting that a portion of Farnham be officially recognized as a village.
On August 27, 1914, the request was approved without amendments, thus creating East Farnham. Mother tongue of most inhabitants is French, but many people here speak both English and French.
