Walter Torraville's Stage Walter Torraville's Stage is located on the main tickle of Change Islands on the southwest shore of the north island, just west of the causeway, the link between the north and south islands. The building is at least 100 years old and is among the oldest in the community. The second owners were Gerry and Pearl Kearley. Pearl still resides on Change Islands and lives in the adjacent house. The house was purchased by Fred Chaffey in the late 1960's and he used it as the Change Islands ferry terminal for a car ferry service that operated between Cobb's Arm on New World Island and Change Islands. This ferry service was discontinued when the Farwell/Change Islands/Fogo Island government service was introduced on December 9th, 1979. The Stages and Stores Heritage Foundation purchased Walter Torraville's Stage in 2002 and completed its restoration in the spring/summer of 2003.
