Where is The Republic of Sarah filmed? Greylock, New Hampshire & all the Filming Locations

Posted by

The Republic of Sarah is set in Greylock, a fictional small town in New Hampshire, right on the border of Canada and the U.S., where everybody knows each other. The Woonsock River is also a made-up place.

When a valuable deposit of coltan is discovered within the village's borders, the residents will oppose the destruction of her town invoking a mapping error to declare themselves an independent nation.

The Republic of Sarah was entirely shot in Quebec, the French-speaking Canadian province. The lovely island town of Greylock is actually an amalgam of several locations filmed in and around Montreal.

Stella Baker as Sarah

The series follows the story of rebellious high school history teacher Sarah played by Stella Baker, the daughter of the star of The Mentalist series Simon Baker. The agent of the mighty Lydon Industries army of bulldozers in the town is her brother Danny Cooper, played by Luke Mitchell.

The cast also features Ian Duff as Grover, Landry Bender as Bella, Nia Holloway as Amy 'AJ' Johnson, Megan Follows as Ellen Cooper, Izabella Alvarez, as Maya and Hope Lauren as Corinne.

Here is our guide to the filming locations of The Republic of Sarah. Stay tuned for updates on this page as more juicy details are unearthed!

The Republic of Sarah town
The scene of the gazebo being torn down was also filmed in Knowlton, in a small park on Lakeside Road between Victoria Street and Knowlton Road.

The studio work was done at MELS Studios in Montreal. Same as with Riverdale's Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe, the local diner where Luis works (played by Salvatore Antonio), is probably a set built in the studios.

Greylock Town Hall
Here is also located the Pettes Memorial Library at 276 Knowlton Road, which doubled as Greylock's Town Hall.

Unlike the Catalans, the inhabitants of Greylock managed to vote in a referendum for independence without being beaten up by the state police.

The Republic of Sarah cemetery
The town of Brome Lake informed in a film notice that the Anglican and St. Edward’s cemeteries and St. Paul’s Church were also transformed into a film set for the series.

Local newspaper La Relève reported that the production was filming scenes in the neighborhood of Vieux-Boucherville, a gorgeous suburb of Montreal.

In addition, the film crews completely transformed the look and the storefronts on the old section of Saint-Charles Ouest Street.

In this area, many of the buildings are officially classified as historic monuments. The house pictured is a 1900 heritage residence located by Saint-Lawrence River on Marie-Victorin Boulevard at the intersection of Guérin Street.
