The Hand and Heart LOL #9 was originally constructed between 1895 to 1898 in Green’s Harbour by local members of the Loyal Orange Lodge as a site for their organizations meetings and for community events. Throughout the years the building has also been used as a polling station during provincial and federal elections, for writing public exams, and as a judicial courtroom. The Heart and Hand LOL was designated a Registered Heritage Structure by Heritage NL in 1995 due to its social and aesthetic significance.
