Elliston Root Cellars

Elliston is located on the tip of the Bonavista Peninsula known for whale watching, bird watching and a sandy beach. In 2000, the town of Elliston declared itself the “Root Cellar Capital of the World.” Though efforts of the town and Memorial University of Newfoundland, Elliston has been able to research, document and save a huge number of root cellars that were once used to store vegtables and other food goods from freezing in the winter or spoiling in the summer. As well, root cellars were used to store alcoholic beverages and were a large part of life in the area.
