A number of buildings on the Bonavista Peninsula will receive plaques on Tuesday recognizing them as Registered Heritage Structures, the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador announced today.
The structures include Archibald Christian House in Trinity, Edwin and Priscilla Miller House in New Bonaventure, Evelley House in Trinity East, St. Luke’s Anglican Church in Old Bonaventure, and Monk’s House in King’s Cove.
“Registered Heritage Structures are buildings which are representative of a special time and place,” says Frank Crews, chairperson of the heritage foundation.
“Above all, a heritage structure of provincial significance must have significant historical interest and architectural design.”
A plaque ceremony will be held 2 p.m. at St. Luke’s Anglican Church in Old Bonaventure.
“The designation of these buildings represents an important part of our province’s heritage,” Crews said. “The preservation of the built heritage and culture of the peninsula has made it one of the most notable heritage regions in the province.”
