      In this episode we talk with mentor Joyce, and apprentice Miranda who are two participants of Heritage NL’s Mentor-Apprentice Program. Joyce is an award winning wildcrafter whose dedication to the conservation of Labrador's traditional crafts is only matched by her immense talent. Joyce has demonstrated and taught her skills in workshops across Labrador and has helped bring duffle work back to Labrador, by completing workshops from Labrador City to Lanse au Clair. Miranda is a novice artisan of duffle work, a craft that uses a pure wool fabric to create mittens, slippers and more. She is well versed in traditional Innu crafts such as Tea Dolls and Beadwork. Miranda is currently employed at the Great Caribou Studio in Mary's Harbour where she has been focusing on beadwork and has had the opportunity to sell her art.

      Twillingate Masonic Lodge searching for historic photos

       


      Twillingate Masonic Lodge is asking for the public’s help in documenting the history of their designated heritage building. 

      Twillingate Lodge is collecting photos to populate a photo archive that they hope to make available to the public in 2023 or 2024.  Twillingate Masonic Temple was designated a Registered Heritage Structure by Heritage NL in 1998 due to its aesthetic, historic and cultural value.

      The Lodge is looking for photos of:

      • The building at any time throughout its long history or photos of the Old Court House that was the home of Twillingate Masons from 1889 to 1907.
      • Former and current members of the lodge in their regalia at formal events. 
      • Masons participating in any community event - regalia or not.
      • Any old documents pertaining to Twillingate Lodge or of its members.

      Heritage NL is assisting Twillingate Lodge in this initiative. By sharing any pictures or documents that you have, you will be helping preserve this aspect of our heritage for future generations. The public is invited to drop by the Lodge and Heritage NL staff will scan your photo or document. Originals will be returned during the event. 

      When? Wednesday, October 19th

      1:30 - 4:30 PM and 6:30 - 9:00 PM

      Fowler House: A Restoration Project in Brigus

      The Fowler House in Brigus, built circa 1850, was designated as a Registered Heritage Structure by Heritage NL in 1988 for its historic value.

      The most iconic and distinctive part of the structure is the roller located at the base of a door on the second floor of the attachment - this served as a way to ease pulling fishing nets up from the street into the loft to mend them. As the town of Brigus was heavily involved in the fishery, having a tangible representation of the history of the fishery in the community through the house is very valuable.

      Today the current owners are working with Heritage NL, contractors, and individuals skilled in heritage restorative work to restore the house to be not only a home, but also a representation of the history of the community. In collaboration with them we are going to be posting a chronological history of the house, as well as restoration updates, on social media.

      Follow along with the project by using the hashtags #BrigusTwineLoft and #HeritageNL on our

      Pouch Cove Clifton Lodge SUF #46 Adaptive Reuse Report: Looking Back and Possible Futures

      Check out what we did in Pouch Cove when we were working with the community in planning for the restoration and adaptive reuse of the Pouch Cove Society of United Fishermen’s (SUF) #46 Clifton Lodge! 

      Image: Clifton Lodge building from the Northeast side.

      We have been working with the Pouch Cove Heritage Society and the community of Pouch Cove to come up with adaptive reuse ideas for the old SUF Hall, Clifton Lodge, that would be a benefit to the community. Most recently, we created and published a report - “Pouch Cove Clifton Lodge SUF #46 Adaptive Reuse Report: Looking Back and Possible Futures.” This was created following a public meeting with Heritage NL, the Pouch Cove Heritage Society, and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts & Recreation. 


      During this meeting we encouraged members of the community to identify their memories of the SUF Hall, what is missing in the community, and what they would like to see become of the building. The report details the results of the meeting, an accumulation of historical research on the Pouch Cove SUF Hall #46 Clifton Lodge, memories and stories from the meeting attendees, and concludes with suggestions and examples for the future possibilities of reuse based on the values of the community.

      Mosquito School House and Blundon House Receive New Historic Plaques

      On Friday, Heritage NL visited two of our registered heritage structures on the Baccalieu Trail, Mosquito School House in Bristol's Hope and Blundon House in Bay de Verde.

      Blundon House in Bay de Verde
      Mosquito School House in Bristol's Hope

      Built-in 1896, Blundon House is the last remaining merchant house in Bay de Verde and one of only a few on the lower North Shore of Conception Bay. Originally owned by local merchant John Blundon, the house's exterior accents, ornate detailing, and separate servants' quarters set it apart from other houses in the community through its upper-class owners. His son James later inherited the house.


      Community of Bay de Verde

      Blundon house was donated by Dorothy Blundon, the widow of James Blundon, to the Town of Bay de Verde in 1996, 100 years after it was constructed. It is now preserved and used as the Bay de Verde Heritage House, where it is open to visitors in the summer. Blundon House was designated a Registered Heritage Structure by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador in 1997.


      New Blundon House Plaque

      Mosquito School House in Bristol's Hope also received a new plaque. This one-room schoolhouse was built around 1823 and was used as a school for over 100 years. Originally built by the Colonial and Continental Church Society, the schoolhouse was located next to the local Methodist church (later United), which was later demolished.

      Mosquito School House Interior

      The exterior of Mosquito School House has recently been restored, and the interior is representative of a traditional Newfoundland one-room school house. Mosquito School House was designated a Registered Heritage Structure by Heritage NL in 1988.
