Overview In February 2001, the primary plans for a non-profit community group dedicated in preserving and promoting the history of Blacks Harbour were drafted. Compared to other communities in the province, the village of Blacks Harbour has little historical records available for public access. For much of it's history, it was owned and managed by Connors Bros. Ltd., a private company. Thus much of the community's records are in private holdings. It's our goal to change that and to gather information for future generations.

UPDATE As of January 2007, the Blacks Harbour Historical Society closed due to lack of public interest. "I hope to one day renew the group but without additional interest from others, I do not wish to continue this project alone. So I will be concentrating on several projects privately which are still focused on local history. - Jason Gaudet, founder. See the Project Page for projects that remain on-going. Also, any request and looks-up until December 2006 will be honored (6 Pending Request). This website will remain open and updated as time permits. (Read More)
