Clarenville Heritage Museum


Jun 27 - Sep 2

Clarenville Heritage Museum preserves items pertaining to the railway, shipbuilding, logging and the transatlantic telephone cable which once connected Oban, Scotland to Clarenville in 1955. This was the first voice or telephone sub-sea cable connecting two major continents with Clarenville being the most eastern terminal. Our history is mainly of an industrial one by nature such as the former colas plant that produced coal tar emulsion for the runways at Gander and railways.
