Photo: Raleigh Village Ha Ha Bay Newfoundland Labrador

The water laps up along the coastline with the village of Raleigh in Ha Ha Bay in Newfoundland Labrador in Canada perched on the opposite side.

Across from the Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve in Newfoundland Labrador in Canada, this small village called Raleigh (once known as Ha Ha Bay) was a thriving community back in the 1980's. During 1956 there were approximately 256 people that resided in the village of Raleigh which eventually grew to over 400 people by the middle of the 1980's.

One quarter of the population were school children and it was a village that was very proud up until the fisheries closed down. This had a major impact on the economy and all of the younger generation had to move to bigger places to make a living. In 2006, there were only five young children that attended school and they were sent to a school twenty miles away in St. Anthony, Newfoundland in Newfoundland Labrador.

Houses and buildings were being boarded up regularly and it looked the village of Raleigh in Newfoundland Labrador would eventually become a ghost town. ... continue below the picture...

... Things have turned around for Raleigh as a rare and unique species of plants was found here bringing in scientists from all over the world. More tourists have come to this charming village to explore these wonders and Raleigh is now home to a hotel.

The original name seemed a little odd and it was early in the 1900's that a boat ran ashore called the Raleigh and the people thought that this was a suitable name for their village, so Raleigh it became. Ha Ha Bay is a very sheltered area as the Burnt Cape Island protects the town of Raleigh from any severe winter storms that sweep in across the ocean. When winter conditions freeze up Ha Ha Bay, the town of Raleigh has incredible ice fishing due to the fact that many rivers are within the vicinity making the fish plentiful.

Town of Raleigh located in Ha Ha Bay and which sits opposite Burnt Island better known as Burnt Cape Ecological Reserve, along Highway 437, Northern Peninsula, Great Northern Peninsula, Viking Trail, Trails to the Vikings, Newfoundland, Newfoundland Labrador, Canada.
