Best Answer

No one seems to know for sure. The Vikings might have gotten there in the 11th century but that is very uncertain. It was long believed that John Cabot had explored it in the 1490's but that has recently been disputed. Various Spanish, Portugese, French and English explorers were there in the 15th century.
