An important settlement on south side of Trinity Bay, district of Trinity. It is a post town. The inhabitants are engaged in farming and shipbuilding to some extent; the cod fishery is also carried on.

It is the packet station for the boat which runs across the bay to Trinity. Distant from Heart's Content by road 3 miles, from St John's by road 83 miles. Mail weekly. Population 420.
