Historic Attractions and Museums in Gander

Gander is known as the " Crossroads of the World " because its international airport is about halfway between major metropolitan areas of Europe and North America. The airfield was built during World War ll because Gander was a fog free area and was much too far inland to be attacked from the sea. After the war, demands on Gander as a Trans Atlantic stop increased as the aviation industry entered the jet age.

Gander is also a good home base for exploring Central Newfoundland, and the picturesque Kittiwake Coast.
