Shedding Light on Our Past.

The Clarenville Heritage Society, located in the former CN Railway Station, is a dedicated group of volunteers who work hard in preserving the history of Clarenville and surrounding area.

We still have some 10th Anniversary Mugs left. Emblazed with two iconic symbols that put Clarenville on the map: The Railway & TAT-1 Cable Landing world's first transatlantic telephone cable, each mug sells for $5.00 each.

The Clarenville Heritage Museum is now closed for the season. For more information please call 709-466-7489 for visits.

From the Heritage Archives we present this sample from the 16mm film collection of the late Mr. Martin Bourne, former resident of Clarenville in the 1950s. Mr. Bourne who operated the first movie theatre in our town was also a filmmaker who shot colour films around the Clarenville and Bonavista area. His son, Larry donated the film prints to Heritage in July 2014.

Quips and Quotes:

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know no way of judging the future but by the past.

Listen to our conversation with Mr. John Stanley of George's Brook who worked at the Newfoundland Hardwoods Plant from 1946 to 1979. An interesting account of what life was like back then in Clarenville.

Our goal is to capture more local stories from our senior citizens who have a lot to share to us as we shed light on our past. Click here for more local stories on our media page.
