Description From Owner:
  • Holberg - Danish settlers who came here in 1895 named their settlement after Baron Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754), the distinguished Danish historian and dramatist. Holberg was the first writer to use Danish as a literary language.
  • San Josef Bay - Apparently unaware that in 1786 Captain Hanna had named this St. Patrick's Bay, Francisco de Eliza gave it its present name in 1791.
  • Sea Otter Cove - This is the sea otter Harbour that Captain James Hanna named in 1786 after his ship Sea Otter.
