It has been said that the resettlement of people from their native soil should never be forgotten. 1991 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the forced evacuation of the Argentia people from their homes to make way for the establishment of a United States Naval and Army Base during World War II. This book has been written in an effort to help the descendants of the those people to gain some knowledge of the history of Argentia, how their parents and grandparents earned their livelihood, and the trauma they experienced when they had to leave. Over half a century later, it is a fitting time to relate the Argentia story.

Eileen (Hunt) Houlihan was born in Argentia, Newfoundland on December 11, 1909; she grew up there and attended school in nearby Marquise. Upon completing her education, Eileen taught school in Argentia for fourteen years.

As a result of the establishment of the Argentia Naval Station, she resettled to Freshwater, Placentia Bay in 1942, where she taught school for one year. In 1944, she married Bill Houlihan, and Eileen and Bill remained in Freshwater for the rest of their lives. Eileen Houlihan died in January 1996; Bill predeceased her in October 1995.
