A BRIEF HISTORY
BAY ROBERTS HERITAGE SOCIETY INC.
The Society was founded in 1989 and incorporated in 1991 in an effort to stem the erosion
and destruction of the last remnants of the history and culture of the Town. Artifacts were
being discarded or sold to outside interests. Older buildings were allowed to deteriorate
and were torn down. The founding members were: Betty Jerrett, Chair; Rexine Bradbury,
Treasurer; Phyllis Russell, Secretary; Jean Hillyard and Eric Jerrett, Directors. Later, Dr.
Wilson Russell was added as a director, and Christopher Pratt as Honorary Chair.
The Society mission statement is,
“To preserve, protect, and present the history and culture of the Bay Roberts area”.
