23 - Lester-Garland House, Trinity
HOURS:9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Lester-Garland House sits on the site of the first brick house in Newfoundland, built in the 1760s. The building was taken down 200 years later despite preservation efforts by the Trinity Historical Society. Meticulously reconstructed in 1996-1997 using detailed measurements and photographs, the current building is a precise reproduction of the original Lester-Garland House, and serves as a museum, education centre and home to the Trinity Historical Society Archives. The house includes artifacts from the Lester and Garland families, providing visitors with a glimpse into the foundational days of Trinity and its strong historical and cultural links to the west of England.
