Decades ago, Sir Dr. Wilfred Grenfell & many local residents used to walk to the scenic tea house after a long day of work. The former tea house structure no longer remains, but there is a viewing platform with interpretative panels placed where you could find the original foundation of the tea house. One can only imagine the types of conversation and the people who shared a cup of team during that era of development for St. Anthony and the people of the North. Maybe there are locals or others who have memories and care share stories of this place. If so, please feel free to post a comment.
The Tea House Hill walking trail begins at Grenfell House Museum and is about 20 minutes return. At the top, one will get beautiful views of St. Anthony, the ocean, forest and wilderness that surrounds the community.

Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile.Sir Wilfred T. Grenfell
Enjoy the views, the flowers and forested surroundings as you make your way to the top. There is designated parking at the Grenfell House Museum.
If you would like to learn more about Dr. Grenfell and his impact on the Great Northern Peninsula and in Labrador, you may wish to visit the Grenfell Interpretation Centre and their new exhibit, adrift on the ice.
