The current offering by O’Dea’s Realty and Auction Room is an opportunity to purchase 9 acres, Ocean Front property in Adams Cove.
The land was owned by an Evans clan and two families used to occupy the property with homes and various outbuildings where the families grazed and raised animals and grew vegetables. The stream which flowed through the property served the owners well but has since “grown in” but can readily be restored by a new owner.
Settled early in the 18th century, Adams Cove grew to be a thriving was a thriving rural community in it’s formative period with a school, train station, cod liver oil plant and a large general store. Back in the early nineteenth century residents recall the horse and cart riding along the shore road from Bradley’s Cove to Kingston collecting the cod livers. Back then people stored their cod livers in wooden barrels for collection. At the factory the oil was placed in 45 gallon drums then shipped all over the world.
Sadly, the cod liver oil factory is no longer in existence. In recent years, the area has focused on the arts.
