Bonavista Archives was established by the Bonavista Historical Society in partnership with the Bonavista, Newfoundland and Labrador and the Bonavista Historic Townscape Foundation. The Archives began as a natural outgrowth of the collection and research done by the Bonavista Historical Society and the Bonavista Museum. The collection began with a few genealogy related items and grew into a substantial collection which now includes church records from thirteen communities in the area. The Archives has since grown to include business ledgers, indentures, photographs, postcards, maps, architectural plans, and audiotapes.
The Archives' textual records date from the 18th to the 20th century. They include material relating to the history of the town and citizens of Bonavista and the surrounding area.
