Here is a picture of former Haitian President Tiresias Simon Sam who was born in Grand Riviere du Nord

Grand Riviere-du-Nord is situated in an historical region of the country. It is a short distance from the colonial city of Cap Haitien and the Citadel Laferriere, a military landmark.

Grand Riviere also contains the Gallifet Sugar Plantation, the most successful sugar farm in the colonial era. The plantation served as backdrop for the Haitian slave revolt, a ten-year war. A Voodoo invocation held on the plantation preceded the insurrection.

Today the city is experiencing resurgence through government projects designed to modernize the city.
