Upper Island Cove, in Harbour Grace District, Newfoundland, is a unique town both in its physical location and its culture. The town was once known as “The Walled City” because it is built at the bottom of high cliffs. According to the Berry Census of 1675, the population was fourteen. The current population is 1774 (2001 census). A number of today's residents are descendents of these early fishermen from England and Ireland[1].
