|History of the Name|
The official history of the geographic name Cable Head (which can be somewhat technical, we admit):
When the first Scotch settlers came to this district, the y found on the shore below the farm now owned by John Sim ons, a piece of hemp cable, evidently from some vessel. F rom this incident they named the place in Gaelic "Ceann C able" meaning Cable End. The work Ceann means End, but is also means head. When English became the most common lan guage, the name was translated in the form Cable Head. (J ohn McK. Simons, postmaster, 1905).
