Some Interesting facts About Town of Winterland

Town of Winterland is the only inland community on the Burin Peninsula. 

Town of Winterland

Winterland is a small community between  Garnish and Marystown on the ankle of the Burin Peninsula and is the only inland community on the Burin Peninsula. 

In 1939 the government resettled people into Winterland from the islands around Placentia Bay.  People also moved here from the Town of Garnish.  In the Winterland area there were acres of land suitable for growing crops and raising livestock.  Between the 1940`s and 1950`s the community started growing, and now it's the only community on the Burin Peninsula that farms.  However, there is only one family in the area that still farms.  The remaining people left the community to work in the surrounding area.

TO ALL RESIDENTS WITH SECURITY SYSTEMS:

 

 

IT HAS COME TO THE ATTENTION OF THE WINTERLAND FIRE DEPARTMENT AND THE TOWN COUNCIL, DUE TO THE FIRE DEPARTMENT CHANGING THEIR LOCAL PHONE NUMBER, THE SECURITY COMPANIES DO NOT HAVE THE CORRECT NUMBER TO CALL IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

 

IF YOU, OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW, HAVE A SECURITY SYSTEM INSTALLED IN YOUR HOME, PLEASE CALL THE TOWN OFFICE TO GET THE CORRECT NUMBER AND ENSURE YOUR SECURITY COMPANY HAS BEEN UPDATED.

 

RESIDENTS ARE ALSO REMINDED TO CALL 911 IN CASE OF ANY EMERGENCY AND NOT THE LOCAL NUMBER.
