Calvert was originally named Capelin Bay but in 1922 was renamed in honour of Sir George Calvert, an English politician, colonizer, and the first Lord Baltimore. Meanwhile, the community itself dates back almost 400 years and some of that old world charm can still be witnessed today in the towns rich culture and traditions.

During the community's early years residents primarily depended on the inshore fishery, along with some small scale farming and saw mill activities. Today, Calvert still depends on the fishery as the main employment generator, although an increased number of residents commute to St. John's or work in the province's growing oil and gas industry.

A safe and nurturing community, Calvert welcomes newcomers to enjoy the fresh ocean air and pristine countryside. Whether you are a young family seeking a safe and clean place to raise children, or a retiree who wants to unwind at the oceans edge, Calvert has something to offer everyone.
