Anchor Point

Anchor Point is the oldest English settlement on the French Shore, dating back to 1750. The local merchant family, the Genges, spent more than a century fending off French attempts to oust them from the area. Visit the Deep Cove Winter Housing Site to understand why residents of Anchor Point would move to Deep Cove to get away from the torrid winter weather.
