Before 1966, Arnold's Cove was a small fishing community of 35 families. With the government's resettlement program in the 1960's, it became one of the growth centres for people moving from the islands of Placentia Bay. In 1966 the population of Arnold's Cove skyrocketed with approximately 139 families moving here from many of the islands of Placentia Bay.
The impact on the people and their children that moved, along with the impact that the original people of the community must have felt is 'A Story To Be Told.' The researcher would conduct interviews, collect information, pictures etc for the Arnold's Cove Heritage Foundation Inc.
