Population in 1976 was 576

A small, unincorporated community stretched out along the Conception Bay Highway, between Manuels and Foxtrap, near Long Pond, Greeleytown was first recorded in the Newfoundland Census in 1945 with a population of 146. Before that time Greeleytown residents were included in census returns for nearby communities. In the 1940s the residents of the community were engaged in agricultural pursuits and grew turnips, potatoes, cabbage, beets and hay. They also kept livestock, including horses, pigs, sheep, goats, cows and chickens. As no involvement with the fishery was recorded, it is likely that the residents engaged in commercial agriculture.
