Subsistence of Early Outport Newfoundlanders

Creator(s): Tourism Elliston Inc.

Set in Elliston on the East coast of Newfoundland at the tip of the historic Bonavista peninsula, this Community Stories exhibit illustrates the rugged life of outport Newfoundlanders in the early 1900s. Nearly a 300-kilometer drive from the capital city of St. John's, Elliston was known as "Bird Island Cove" until it was renamed in honour of Rev. William Ellis in March of 1902.
