The places identified by the community for folklore and oral history research will represent a variety of spaces. Some of these places are well known community landmarks that tell of the town’s long history, and which tie the present to the earliest days of settlement. The remaining potential heritage places are less well-known, and largely undocumented. They reflect neighbourhood oral traditions, local folklore and folk belief, and speak to Bay Roberts’ history as an early to mid twentieth-century commercial centre.
