The town of Bay de Verde is located in Conception Bay, Newfoundland & Labrador near the extreme end of the Bay de Verde Peninsula or what is known today as 'The Baccalieu Trail'.
Bay de Verde is the northernmost community in Conception Bay and has a base population of approximately 400 residents. The first recorded inhabitants at Bay de Verde arrived in 1662. Bay de Verde became an incorporated town in 1950.
The central part of our picturesque fishing village is nestled between two hills. On both sides, the low-lying area gently slopes towards the ocean. On the southwestern side is the harbour (called the 'foreside') where fishing boats are moored - away from the land and wharfs.
The other side of this low-lying area (called the 'backside') was once used for fishing stages (called fishing rooms) where boats were also moored away from the land. Due to its more treacherous rocks and steep slopes and its exposure to the raging sea and winds of the North Atlantic, the 'backside' has long been abandoned as an area for fishing rooms.

The Bay de Verde Heritage House was built in 1896 by Mr. John Blundon and family of Bay de Verde. The structure of the house is a good example of Merchant Class Victorian housing. The house was donated by Mrs. Dorothy Blundon and family to the Town of Bay de Verde on September 16, 1996 (exactly 100 years after it was constructed). It is now preserved and used as a Heritage House.
