Uncle Ben’s

A well-preserved heritage home centrally located in downtown Change Islands (population 200), Uncle Ben’s house overlooks Skinner’s Harbour with a distant view across the water of the hills of Fogo Island. Rugged natural beauty, scenic fishing stages, and the legendary warmth and hospitality of Newfoundlanders combine to make Change Islands a very special place.

Ben Diamond’s grandfather, Ben Ledrew, built this home at the turn of the last century. When the first diesel generating plant brought electricity to Change Islands in 1963, Ben saw no need for the comforts and conveniences of connection to the grid. Ben continued to live in this house, without electricity or running water, for his entire life. A small wood stove in the kitchen was the principal source of heat.

When I acquired the house from Uncle Ben’s nephews in 2010, it was in almost museum-quality condition, with original linoleum floors and many layers of wallpaper dating back over 100 years. Restoring the house so as to retain its many layers of history, while still providing the basic amenities of modern life, such as electricity and running water, has been a seven year labour of love (or folly, some might say). The bathroom is entirely new and the kitchen has been substantially upgraded while preserving the original tongue-in-groove walls and ceiling, and the wood floor. The rest of the house has been left as much as possible in its original condition with the various layers of wallpaper exposed in many of the rooms and the original linoleum floors, and linoleum fragments, kept in place. With the exception of the mattresses, the furniture is also all original to the house.

Outside the traditional wooden clapboard and wooden windows have been repainted in the typical white of Change Islands, with the tile red trim which matches the many stages and stores on the island. Except for a small area immediately around the house, most of the yard has been left to grow wild; long native grasses interspersed with wildflowers dominate the meadow behind the house.

Каде ќе бидете

Change Islands, Newfoundland and Labrador, Канада

The house is located directly across the road from the water. Everything on Change Islands is within walking distance; the house is a five minute walk from the general store and one of the two local restaurants on the island. There are numerous hiking trails and, for those who enjoy swimming in waters frequently visited by icebergs, some spectacularly scenic swimming spots. For families with young children there is a brand new public playground in the schoolyard. The Change Islands Newfoundland Pony Refuge is of interest to all ages; rides can be usually be arranged for children. Summer days are very long, but if you stay up late enough for the sky to turn dark there are some great opportunities for stargazing just beyond the lights of the town.

When the capelin are running (typically in late July and August) whales can often be seen swimming off the coast. Local fishermen have been known to offer curious tourists boat rides and to take them out fishing. (There is a recreational cod fishery open at various times over the summer; consult the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada website for the dates of the Newfoundland and Labrador Recreational Groundfish Fishery.)
