To appreciate this village, you must leave Route 138 and take the road that passes through town. Magpie, named after a bird not found in the region, was the largest cod fishing harbor at the turn of the 20th century. Near the pier of the once bustling harbor, a rest area leads to a rock formation forming a natural lookout and vantage point for whale watching. On the river is a 40 megawatt hydroelectric plant, built to replace a 2 megawatt facility erected in 1958.
