Truce Sound Peace Garden
A 1.5 km hike takes you to Frenchman's Island, a place that has figured prominently in the history of the area. The first recorded meeting between English and Beothuk took place near here in 1612. A Peace Garden Memorial was built on the island in 2012 to commemorate this historic and friendly meeting. English prisoners were held here during the Winter War of 1696-97 - when French troops raided settlements in Trinity Bay.
