  • About

    The Grenfell Historic Properties mandate is to preserve, protect and promote the legacy of Sir Wilfred Thomason Grenfell.

    Wilfred Thomason Grenfell was a heroic medical missionary, originally from Parkgate, England.

    In 1892, Dr. Grenfell was sent to Newfoundland & Labrador to investigate the state of the fishery.

    This was the start of his lifelong work to aid the people of an isolated coast - ice blocked and inaccessible for many months of the year.

    "The purpose of this world in not to have to hold but to serve" Wilfred T Grenfell
