Petty Harbour Museum

Local namePetty Harbour Museum
LocationPetty Harbour-Maddox Cove, Canada

Petty Harbour–Maddox Cove is a town of approximately 960 people located on the eastern shore of the Avalon Peninsula in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. It is nestled deep in the heart of Motion Bay, just south of St. John's. The present town is approximately 200 years old, though the site has been continuously occupied since at least 1598, predating the arrival of the Mayflower and making it one of the oldest European settlements in North America. During King William's War, the village was raided by French forces in the Avalon Peninsula Campaign.

Petty Harbour–Maddox Cove is the site of the Petty Harbour Generating Station, the first hydroelectric generating station in Newfoundland and Labrador. It was also the Tidy Towns population category winner for 2007. This award is based on natural beauty, community involvement, environmental awareness and Heritage preservation.
