Focus on....By the Bay Craft Shop & Museum

By the Bay Craft Shop & Museum is located in Lewisporte and is one of my new venues!

From the Lewisporte website:

"By the Bay Museum is located on 235 Main Street Lewisporte beside the beautiful Notre Dame Bay. Originally constructed as a school house in 1945, the building has been a central part of the community throughout the years.

Today, By the Bay Museum is home to hundreds of local artifacts and stories of years gone by. The museum aims to tell the story of Lewisporte and surrounding area through the stories and experiences of those who have lived here.

The most unique item, 28 foot hooked rug depicting the first 100 years of the town from 1876-1976, is a great representation of the town. Much of the heritage shown in this beautiful rug is present throughout the museum. World War I and World War II, The Female Role, Fishing and Farming, Logging and Sawmills, etc. have been central in making Lewisporte what it is today.

Well stocked with beautiful jewelry, preserves, homemade crafts, art, souvenirs, quilts and much more, the By the Bay Museum and Craft Shop will not disappoint!"

While in Central Newfoundland, make sure you stop into this historic town and visit the By the Bay Craft Shop and Museum.
