The John N. Leamon Museum: Ye Olde Stone Barn & Pinkston’s Forge

Brigus Historical & Conservation Society

Co-located in the beautiful, historic town of Brigus. A single admission fee grants visitors access to both sites.

The Olde Stone Barn Museum boasts an impressive collection of artifacts and models which showcase the local history. Visitors will find knowledgeable, friendly staff on site, as well as extensive genealogical records, Captain Bob Bartlett’s Pathé newsreels, and hundreds of artifacts dating back as far as the 15th century.

Pinkston’s Forge is one of the very few operating forges in Newfoundland. Visitors are invited to watch as local blacksmith crafts small souvenir objects which are available for purchase. In 2014, the forge was moved to its current location next to The Stone Barn Museum. Originally constructed in 1889, the forge proudly displays artifacts and tools which were crafted and used by the original blacksmith.

The Stone Barn was designated a Registered Heritage Structure by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador in 1986.
