A fishery plantation site since the 1700s, the Mockbeggar Plantation was a thriving operation that played a major role in the development of Bonavista. The main house was built in the 1870s and has been restored to 1939 – the time when Newfoundland statesman and advocate for Confederation with Canada F. Gordon Bradley lived here. Other buildings on the property include a large 18th-century fish store, an early 20th-century barter shop, a carpentry shop, and a cod-liver-oil factory.

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