Beothuk Interpretation Centre
Boyd's Cove, off Highway 340, 1 hour north of Gander,
Newfoundland and Labrador.
Imagine... a now-extinct people with a unique language and
culture, thriving on the rich resources of the land and sea: seals,
300 years ago, this site was a Beothuk village. Tour the
interpretation centre where exhibits and artifacts foster an
appreciation for this unique, and now vanished culture.
From the interpretation centre, follow a 1.5 km groomed walking
trail to the village site - today an outline of housepits is the
only evidence of the Beothuk people who once lived here. Along the
trail, a sculpture designed by renowned Newfoundland artist Gerald
Squires evokes the tragedy of the Beothuks' demise.
