Camp-Perrin, a story about three brothers

The story of the three brothers who journeyed to present day Camp-Perrin in the 1700's speaks of an adventure to discover the possibility of growing profitable crops in the region. Cotton and Coffee were high on the agenda for the Perin's, whose name went on to be that of the camp, and they also thought to find whether the Campeche wood dye and indigo could be lucrative as well as the more popular cash crops. Their venture led to the inhabitation of the region and the consequent creation of the two district towns, Haut-Camp and Bas-Camp.
