In 1835, Sherbrooke began seeking government support for the construction of a railroad line, and this became a reality with the construction of a line linking the cities of Montreal and Portland. The last passenger train in the city was the Massawippi Valley Railway, which was controlled by Boston and Maine until 1887 and was connected to the Connecticut Passenger Rivers Railroad at the border between Boston and Canada and ended in Sherbrook in 1871. In 1994, a total of 2,000 people attended a service, the largest one-day passenger service in Canada. Although the Eastern Townships had been hunting and fishing for centuries, they had been under the control of the Abekani since the 16th century.
The American Revolution, however, attracted British loyalists from America to the region, who began to covet the land and receive government subsidies. The establishment of several important factories in the Gorges contributed to the increasing number of francophone workers coming to the region, mainly from Beauce and other parts of Quebec. Paradoxically, it was mainly Anglo-Protestant capital that was able to invest in these new factories, and which was supported by the Eastern Townships Bank. A small French Catholic bourgeoisie was also attracted by the arrival of the Francophones, but remained modest in number and prosperity.
In the second half of the 19th century, academic institutions were established, which turned Sherbrooke into a college town.

At the end of 2010, the Sherrooke Census Metropolitan Area had 212,105 residents, making it the second largest city in the province, behind Montreal.
