Jeffrey’s (formerly known as Bear Brook)

According to legend, mail destined for Bear Brook often went to Bear Cove and vice versa. Around 1900, a local reverend light heartedly suggested to the local postmaster that the name of the town be changed to Jeffrey’s to avoid confusion. Perhaps that mailman got turned around following the Maidstone Meander, a circular 10-kilometre walking trail designated a Volkssport route by the Canadian Volkssport Federation.
