This is the most important station on the south side of Trinity Bay, district of Trinity. The Atlantic telegraph cables have their western terminus here, and recently they have erected a fine building for their office and for the accommodation of their employees. The New York, Newfoundland and London Telegraph Co. has an office here. It has a fine harbor, and the scenery around is picturesque. The people for the most part go to Labrador to prosecute the fishery. Farming and ship building are carried on to some extent. Distant from Harbor Grace 15 miles by road, from St. John's by road 79 miles. Mail weekly. Population 880.
