The history of Mascouche was closely linked to the roles played by Gabriel Christie and Peter and his son John Pangman, 3 of the last owners of the Seigneury de La Chesnaye. Two protestant churches built here, Grace Anglican Church (1840) and the Methodist church (1856), are indicative of the fact that at one time, the English-language minority played an important role in the growth and development of Mascouche. Set up as the parish municipality of Saint-Henri-de-Mascouche in 1855, its name was shortened when incorporated in 1971.

Mascouche was well known as a summer residential area for English-speaking Montréalers who had cottages in "Terrebonne-Heights" or "Terrebonne-Gardens."
