Little Port Harmon is a deep sea harbour in Stephenville, Newfoundland. It is one well known to fisher persons on the West coast of the island. Situated in the town of Stephenville it has been home to fishing vessels and cargo ships and is no stranger to factory freezer ships. Battle ships have also been spotted here as well as ports and bays around the province. During the Second World War the Americans constructed an air strip in Stephenville and built a military base here. For many years “Harmon Day” was celebrated every summer. It continues to be an event that is held intermittently every few years.
According to the Stephenville Historical Society the white cliff known as Indian Head is a type of rock found in few places on earth. Anorthosite, the rock that makes up a large percentage of the cliff, is about a million years old and is among the oldest known in the province.
