THE POOP DECK CRAFT AND GIFT SHOP

This is the place to find the gift for you personally or to take back to your relatives and friends as a memory of your trip to this picturesque part of Newfoundland and Labrador.
|This is also the Visitor Reception Centre and is the main entrance to the Barbour Living Heritage Village. |
||In the Old Methodist Schoolhouse, visitors are given the opportunity to interact with the school teacher and students and learn about education in a one-room school in rural Newfoundland around the early 1900's.|
Such a school was actually located on the Barbour property around 1880.
This building is a typical Newfoundland outport fish stage, where codfish was cleaned, salted, and stored.
It is complete with a fish flake, handbars, splitting table, and other interpretative items commonly found in a fishing stage.
WATERFRONT PREMISES & NEPTUNE II THEATRE
||This building, which is a reconstruction of one of the Barbours' retail business and waterfront premises, now houses a modern theatre and art gallery. Here you can enjoy live theatrical performances in a very comfortable setting.|
The dinner theatre is known for its delicious meal and hilarious entertainment. The art exhibit has featured works by well-known Newfoundland artists such as Christopher Pratt, David Blackwood, and Frank Lapointe.
SEALERS' INTERPRETATION CENTRE
This building is very unique to our area and the province. It is a reconstruction of a building used by the Barbours for brick making and as a general workshop.
Here visitors are given the opportunity to experience life "at the front". They will step aboard a sealing schooner and experience the life and hardships of Newfoundland sealers as they struggle to provide for their families. Enjoy unique displays in this unique handicap accessible facility.
OLDE SHOPPE RESTAURANT
||Enjoy delicious traditional Newfoundland food in the Olde Shoppe Restaurant, located at the Barbour Living Heritage Village.|
