The Grenfell house is well worth a visit! Beautifully restored - housing all kinds of interesting artifacts, documents, and information. You can almost imagine sitting there looking out over the harbour before the trees were so tall!

This was an up-to-date, comfortable castle compared to the dwellings where most of the St. Antony's inhabitants lived in the 1920's. The rooms were large, bright and furnished with beautiful period furniture.

Thanks for reviewing the Grenfell Historic Properties which does include more that one location that interprets the life and times of Dr. Wilfred Grenfell.

We were running short on time so came to see the house first. What a well maintained property. The history and the documentation are very well done.
