Grande-Rivière-du-Nord is the place where Haiti's slave rebellion began, and it was the site of Grade Rivière du Nord Battle.

During U.S. Occupation between 1915-1934, a rebellion was led by resistance fighter Charlemagne Peralte.

The town contains many attributes. It possesses virgin forestland, produces clean mountain-spring drinking water, and participates in agricultural production.
