Bloomfield is located in Goose Bay at the bottom of Bonavista Bay on Route 233, just past Musgravetown. It was founded around 1860 by a man named Honeyburn.
It was named Bloomfield because of the Cherry, Plum and Dogberry trees that grow plentiful in the area displaying beautiful spring blossom. Bloomfield is a small, quiet community of approximately 600 people.
The Bloomfield population consists of woods workers, trades people, transport truck drivers and some fisherpeople.
