The Glovertown Heritage Society is happy to present Some Boats and Boatbuilders from Central Bonavista Bay. The province of Newfoundland and Labrador has a proud and distinguished record of boatbuilding-one that continues today and extends back to the days when only Aboriginal people lived here. Because the province had been dependent primarily on the fishery throughout its history, the building and repairing of boats has been one of the island's major industries. This exhibit will take you on an interesting tour where you'll see visions of Aboriginal boats created by the minds of students at Glovertown Academy. You'll also see many other kinds of boats.
