Twillingate

4.3
Twillingate is a town of 2,269 people located on the Twillingate Islands ("Toulinquet") in Notre Dame Bay. It is located off the northeastern shore of the island of Newfoundland in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It was incorporated on September 30, 1965. The town is about 100km north of Lewisporte and Gander. The Town of Twillingate includes such localities as Back Harbour, Bayview, Durrell, Gillard's Cove, Jenkins Cove, Manuel's Cove, and Wild Cove.The islands provide an excellent sheltered harbour and easy access to the rich fishing grounds nearby. Twillingate Island is connected to mainland Newfoundland via the Walter B. Elliott causeway as part of Route 340. Recently labeled as "The Iceberg Capital of the World", the town is also one of the oldest ports on the island. It was a historic fishing community, but because of the decline of the fishing industry, its economy now relies more on tourism.HistoryThe earliest known people to inhabit the area were the Maritime Archaic, who occupied the area about 3,500 years ago in 1500 BC. The Maritime Archaic people were later supplanted by the Beothuk, and possibly the Dorset Inuit, who occupied the area until the arrival of European settlers.
