This place is worth a visit even though it needs some TLC to make it more attractive. The displayed furniture and artifacts are very interesting and gives one a feel for the people who lived here and their lifestyle.

As advertised in the Grenfell Historic Properties brochure, the tour includes all that is specified. The Legacy of Dr. Grenfell may not have been something of interest to you.

This was the Grenfell family home where you can see many artifacts from the doctor, his wife and children. It's a large Victorian with many rooms of memorabilia. I especially liked seeing the early medical instruments and the artwork. Be sure to visit.

The house is an amazing part of the Grenfell Legacy. The sun room is a lovely place to sit back and enjoy a cup of tea while enjoying the view of the St. Anthony Harbour.

The life history of Wifred Grenfell's mission to bring medicine and the gospel to northern Newfoundland and Labrador is very inspirational. Well worth a visit.
