History

Not to be confused with Broad Cove, in Conception Bay.

Small Point-Adam's Cove-Blackhead-Broad Cove is a town in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, located in the Trinity-Conception Bay District north of Carbonear[1].

The town was incorporated in 1968 by amalgamating the independent fishing villages of Small Point, Adam's Cove, Blackhead and Broad Cove. The neighbouring community of Kingston was originally part of the amalgamation, but withdrew in 1976.

The town had a population of 438 in the Canada 2006 Census.

Early Families

There were two fishing stages mapped at Broad Cove by 1774, which may have belonged to Dennis Dunn and the five children of John LeGrow, resident there in 1776[2]. By 1894 the LeGrow family had become the most important dealers and planters in Broad Cove.
