Baie Verte existed as a small community in the late 1800's and early 1900's. It remained a small village until the discovery of asbestos and other ore bodies of copper, lead, zinc and gold in the mid-1950s when the town underwent major expansion. Bowring Brother's steamers came to the area in the 1950s to transport the ore found here. Baie Verte became incorporated as a town in 1958.
