A history of the Lane/Heffern House in Salvage, Bonavista Bay


The Salvage Fisherman’s Museum (alternatively, the Lane/Heffern House) was designated a Registered Heritage Structure by Heritage NL March 20th, 2020 due to its historic and aesthetic value. Supposedly the oldest surviving home in the area, the museum building was constructed sometime in the mid 19th century by members of the Lane family who lived in Salvage by 1830.

Heritage NL has been working with the museum committee on documenting the history of the structure, which has proven to be more complicated than originally thought. It may be that the building was constructed in two phases, which would explain some of the quirks of the building itself.

Monday, 2 November 2020, the Town of Salvage hosted a “People, Places & Culture “Workshop, facilitated by Heritage NL. The event was attended by approximately 15-20 individuals from the community on the first night and 20-25 the following day, Tuesday, 3 November 2020, including some partner and governmental organizations.  

The workshop comprised two parts: I) a cultural mapping activity that considered the community’s tangible and intangible cultural assets and; II) a session to explore opportunities for protecting, safeguarding and developing these assets that included representation from stakeholders.  The latter activity involved the ranking of themes and clusters of cultural assets that emerged from the mapping session. 

This report is a summary of what was discussed, and includes a number of recommendations, resources, and links from HeritageNL.
