Root Cellars

Cow Calf Hill Cellars


         Through the coordinated efforts of Memorial University of Newfoundland, Tourism Elliston and Human Resources Development Canada, Elliston was able to officially declare itself the "Root Cellar Capital of the World" in July 2000. Elliston boasts 135 documented root cellars, some of which have survived nearly two centuries. This makes Elliston a cultural center for those who seek to gain an understanding of early Newfoundland subsistence.
