Heart's Content Cable Station Provincial Historic Site

Heart's Content

May 18 - Oct 11

Over 150 years ago, the first successful transatlantic telegraph cable was landed at Heart's Content reducing the time to communicate across the Atlantic from weeks to minutes. The technology revolution had begun and changed the way we communicate. This little Newfoundland town leaped into the history books and remained a global communications hub for over a century. The cable station is a time capsule of the communications technology that connected us all right up to the 1960s.
