French Shore Interpretation Centre

Région touristique : White Bay Central

In February 2000, the French Shore Historical Society was formed with a mandate to preserve the history and material culture surrounding the communities of Conche, Croque, St. Julien's/Grandoies, and Main Brook. The towns are located within a region historically known as the Petit Nord of the French Shore. The old Grenfell Nursing station located in Conche is now the French Shore Interpretation Centre and is home to an exhibit "Quest for Cod" and also home to the "French Shore Tapestry".
