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
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...
