~ The Clarenville Heritage Society ~
The Clarenville Heritage Society, located in the former CN Railway Station, is a dedicated group of volunteers who work hard in preserving the history of Clarenville and surrounding area.
We still have some 10th Anniversary Mugs left. Emblazed with two iconic symbols that put Clarenville on the map: The Railway & TAT-1 Cable Landing world's first transatlantic telephone cable, each mug sells for $5.00 each.

From the Heritage Archives we present this sample from the 16mm film collection of the late Mr. Martin Bourne, former resident of Clarenville in the 1950s. Mr. Bourne who operated the first movie theatre in our town was also a filmmaker who shot colour films around the Clarenville and Bonavista area. His son, Larry donated the film prints to Heritage in July 2014.
