Our province is filled with geologic wonders, mysterious histories, curious structures, and off-the-beaten-path destinations. From unexplored cave systems to the remains of Cold War-era aircraft, to deteriorating churches in long resettled communities to abandoned air force bases. From the remains of Newfoundland’s first pulp mill to the intricate mines below many communities, this book will inspire wonder and curiosity—and raise awareness of the many unusual and peculiar locations that are nestled on the Rock.
Hidden Newfoundland describes over 120 of these marvelous, sometimes mysterious places. Each site description includes historical context, information about the area and, of course, insider’s directions for how to get there.
