Broom Point Fishing Premises

St. Pauls
 

Step inside the fish store and tiny cabin and imagine the lives of the three Mudge brothers and their families who fished at Broom Point from 1941 to 1975. The wooden buildings, hand built boats, fishing gear and homey cabin recall the inshore fishery in open boats that once sustained Newfoundland's coastal communities. Parks Canada guides from the local area keep the story alive. Explore the rocky point, the garden hidden in the tuckamore, and the cemetery in the nearby cove.
