Structures on Bonavista Peninsula to receive heritage plaques

On Tuesday, August 27, at St. Luke’s Anglican Church in Old Bonaventure, the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador (HFNL), will unveil a series of plaques recognizing the designation of Registered Heritage Structures on the Bonavista Peninsula.

“Registered Heritage Structures are buildings which are representative of a special time and place,” says Frank Crews, Chairperson, HFNL. “Above all, a heritage structure of provincial significance must have significant historical interest and architectural design.”

The structures include Archibald Christian House (Trinity), Edwin and Priscilla Miller House (New Bonaventure), Evelley House (Trinity East), St. Luke’s Anglican Church (Old Bonaventure) and Monk’s House (King’s Cove).

Attending the ceremony is Trinity area MHA; Ross Wiseman, Municipality of Trinity Bight; along with officials from HFNL and the Trinity Historical Society Foundation and citizens from Trinity and surrounding communities.

“The designation of these buildings represents an important part of our province’s heritage,” explains Crews. “The preservation of the built heritage and culture of the peninsula has made it one of the most notable heritage regions in the province.”

Individuals interested in having a structure recognized as a Registered Heritage Structure can find more information online at or by calling 1-888-739-1892.
