Orange Hall - Bonavista

The Lodge Building, the largest fraternal hall of wooden construction in North America, was built in 1907. Displayed inside are many artifacts of the local lodge, including furniture, certificates and photographs.

The Orange Lodge was the site for many historic gatherings. Among the noteworthy Newfoundlanders who spoke in the lodge was Sir. William F. Coaker, founder of the Fisherman's Union and neighbouring community of Port Union. Sir William addressed a public gathering at the lodge in 1912, while trying to establish the "Bonavista Platform".
