Lane House Museum

Tilting, Fogo Island

Constructed in the early 1830s, The Lane House is the oldest house in Tilting. It is a typical saltbox style, common in Newfoundland during this time period. In the late 1800s, the ceilings on the second floor were heightened, and green trip was added to the exterior of the house to display the outline of the original home. The most outstanding feature of the home is the unique spiral staircase built by cooper Augustin MacNamara, who also built the home.
