Indian Pond

Population in 1981 was 129

Since 1985 Indian Pond and nearby Seal Cove have been part of the incorporated community of Conception Bay South. Located at the eastern side of Holyrood Bay, near its mouth, the shores of Indian Pond first attracted settlers in the mid-1800s. Early family names associated with Indian Pond are Dawe and Morgan, who came to the area from Port de Grave in search of good farm land with ready access to the sea. Settlement in the area was further encouraged in the 1880s when the railway line to Harbour Grace was routed through Indian Pond. It was first recorded as a separate community in the Census of 1884 with a population of 74 Church of England adherents in 13 families.
