DescriptionOn the east side of the wide river mouth, the Easter Cove has at times been quite removed from the Place. In the early years, there were a fair number of houses in the Easter Cove. However in 1962, rafting ice damaged the series of wooden bridges spanning the river and most families relocated to the Place in 1963. A new causeway built in 1971 has once again opened up the Easter Cove.
