Mercantile Premises

In the 1700s, when Trinity was a bustling, thriving seaport the Mercantile Premises was a hive of activity. This is where fishermen came from all over the Bight to trade their fish for supplies, and where the Lester-Garlands, later the Ryans, kept track of their fortune. The Mercantile Premises is one of the last buildings remaining from a complex of warehouses and workshops and that once lined Trinity’s shore. Today, visitors can explore the 1820s counting house and an early 20th century shop.
