The MacArthur home, ca. 1920s
The MacArthur family was one of several families that emigrated from the Scottish Highlands to Newfoundland's west coast during the 19th century. Most Highlanders settled in the Codroy Valley and St. George's Bay and many of their descendents still live in the area today.
