Torbay Come Home Year 2005


The Town of Torbay, in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, is located just 15 minutes from downtown St. John's. Torbay is home to the most startling features,
with a landscape that combines a rocky shoreline with rolling hills and meadows


The Museum:


Nestled among this vast scenery is the Torbay Museum. The museum was opened on July 22, 1988 and is very appreciative of the town's spirit and support. The museum is home to hundreds of artifacts, donated mostly by residents of Torbay. The town's municipal centre houses the museum and as you enter and walk down the basement hallway you see a full-size model of a street that has several houses, a museum and a library. READ MORE...

The Heritage Committee:

The mandate of the Torbay Heritage Committee includes producing a display of historical artifacts for public viewing, and the preservation and promotion of the heritage of Torbay. The committee was first affiliated with the public library and was under the direction of President Dr. Jim Tague and Vice-President John Ryan. READ MORE...
