Home Ports Canada Grindstone


Grindstone is a small community located in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. It is situated on the eastern coast of the island of Newfoundland, approximately 30 km south of the provincial capital of St. John’s. The community has a population of about 350 people, and is primarily a fishing village.

The name Grindstone is derived from the local Grindstone Harbour, which was named for the large, round, flat stones that were used to grind fish. It is believed that the harbour was first used by the Beothuk people, who were the original inhabitants of the island.

In the 19th century, Grindstone was an important fish processing and trading centre. It was home to a large number of fishing vessels and warehouses, and was a major supplier of salted cod and other fish products to the rest of the world.

Grindstone is also home to a number of historical sites, including the remains of a 17th century French fort, as well as several lighthouses. The community is an important part of the province’s cultural heritage, and is home to a number of festivals and events that celebrate its history and culture.

Today, Grindstone remains a small fishing village, and is a popular tourist destination. The community is known for its beautiful scenery, and is a great place to explore the local culture and history.
