Community: Big Beaver Cove
Locality: Twillingate
Municipality: Notre Dame Bay Region
Province: NL
GPS: Can you help map this cemetery?

Church / Denomination: Anglican

In the early 1900's Beaverton was a thriving community with a whaling factory, logging, and many schooners visiting the deep port. There used to be a road from Port Albert to Beaverton, but now, except for ski-doo travel in winter, Beaverton is only accessible by boat. Trees have overgrown the old road and part of it is under water. When the community was occupied, there was an Anglican church there. Except for a few camps, there are no buildings left at Beaverton. The cemetery is in need of some TLC. The stones there are still in good shape and very readable. The record books from Beaverton Church are presently at Herring Neck.
