Lovell's 1871
Provincial Business Directory
The chief town of the district of Bonavista. This is one of the oldest settlements in the colony and was formerly of more importance than at present, it is however a place of considerable and increasing business. It is a port of entry and the northern circuit court holds a session here every autumn. The harbour is not good, but might be made quite safe by a breakwater, for the construction of which considerable facilities are offered. The only feature of mark in the town is the English church, early English style, perhaps the finest wooden building on the island. The climate of Bonavista is more genial and less foggy than at St. John's though farther north. The land is much cultivated around the town. Distant from St. John's by boat 73 miles. By postal route partly over land weekly, about 100 miles, and from Catalina (port of call for steamer) 10 miles by road. Population 2600.
