R is for Ramea




In the early nineteenth century, settlers formed several small independent communities on the Ramea Islands. In the early 1940s, all inhabitants moved to Northwest Island and formed the Town of Ramea, which was incorporated in 1951. The location provided an excellent harbour and was strategic for exploiting the fishery.


Right as Rain R names:
Raleigh, Rambler, Random Heights, Random Island West, Rantem, Rantem Station, Rattling Brook, Raymond Point, Red Bay, Red Brook, Red Cliff, Red Cove, Red Head, Red Harbour, Red Island, Red Rocks, Redore, Reefs Harbour, Reids Room, Reidville, Rencontre, Renews, Rexons Cove, Richards Harbour, Ringolet, Rious, River Brook, River of Ponds, Riverdale, Riverhead, Robert's Arm, Robinsons Bight, Rock Harbour, Rocky Harbour, Roddickton, Rodgers Cove, Romaines, Rose Bay, Rose Blanche, Rosedale, Ross Bay, Rouge Harbour, Roundabout, Rushoon, Rushy Pond, Russell

    Ramea is pretty. Rocky Harbour is also a nice 'R' community.
