In August 1610, Bristol merchant John Guy arrived at Cupids Cove in Conception Bay with thirty-eight settlers. The colony they established was the first English settlement in what became Canada. The settlers cleared the land, fished, farmed, explored for minerals, and tried to establish a fur trade with the Beothuk. Excavations have been ongoing since the site was discovered in 1995 and every summer archaeologists working the dig site uncover more about the settlement and the people who lived there.

Open from the Victoria Day long weekend until just before Thanksgiving.
