We had a very enjoyable talk with one of the staff in this large, one-room restored general store. She was very knowledgeable and quite enthusiastic. She told us about the store, the goods that were sold there, the family that owned it, the industry and economy of the area during the historical period, the changes over time, etc.

We stepped into the mercantile premises and back into the past. The little store was filled with older things. Jello, tobacco, corsets; you name it, the Ryan’s sold it!

This has been very nicely restored to an earlier era and we enjoyed hearing about the history of the town and the "truck" or trade system that was used here.

This was the only place in Newfoundland that we encountered someone working who wasn't exceptionally friendly. Don't know if she was having an off day or what, but she didn't make us want to hang around.

We stopped here to have lunch - seafood chowder and a sandwich - very generous portions - we could have shared one meal but it was so good we ate it all up! Great selection pf books for sale - I had to restrain myself from buying more!

Our interpreter did a great job explaining how things worked between the fishermen and the merchants back in the day. We recommend buying the season's pass for all the provincial historic sites. $15 for an adult and in our 8 day vacation we went to 8 sites. Normally $6 a person each.

The original counters and ledger book, the shelves and restored floor. Best the accountants’ room which is classic Scrooge.
The owner’s office ... a room with a top view.
We enjoyed every stop on the Trinity historic building tour.

We loved to visit this old building. Souviners were great and a lot of history is captured in these premises.
