I have been researching the history of Central Newfoundland for a long time. I figured that somebody out there might find some of the things I have come across interesting.
Over the past few years I have been checking out old photos posted to various Facebook pages related to Grand Falls-Windsor. Sometime I think I end up writing too much and feel a bit like I am coming off knowitally and long winded. The thing is, is that I know a lot about the history of the region. So much that at one point I had a job where I was tasked with cataloging all of the information related to Central Newfoundland in an Archive. It was a very interesting job and I learned enough to fill several volumes.
Initially this site was going to be devoted to logging but I soon realized that it would be impossible to confine my posts to that subject. So it expanded into a blog on the history of Central Newfoundland and more specifically the Exploits Valley region.
The name comes from the Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company, the builders and original owners of the Grand Falls pulp and paper mill. Much of the history of this region can somehow be tied to this company.
I am always looking for suggestions for articles so feel free to leave a comment. I would like this site to be like a virtual museum-but one that is ongoing, constantly being updated and filled with new and interesting information.
