ADAM’S COVE, N.L.
The Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador recently designated a Conception Bay North property that highlights the history of Methodism in the province as a registered heritage structure.
Adam's Cove Methodist School Hall is an early 20th century mixed-use building. It housed classrooms on the ground floor and a community hall in the upper storey. It is the best-preserved example of a building type once found in nearby Blackhead and at Winterton in Trinity Bay.
Designed by John Ayre, the building exhibits Palladian stylistic elements. Of particular note is the use of decorative pressed tin panels on portions of the interior. Adam's Cove Methodist School Hall has been continuously operated by a local committee for more than 100 years.
