The Memory Store: "The root cellar - that is built heritage...". Don Johnson of Tourism Elliston describes different types of root cellars and how cellars are a form of green energy which keeps vegetables fresh without refrigeration.
The Memory Store is part of the HFNL’s goal to foster a greater appreciation of historic places, by researching the stories and histories of historic places, and making those stories more accessible to the general public. This research includes short video interview clips with people about heritage buildings as well as background research and photography of the historic places.
The HFNL is working to document the architectural history and the associated narratives of Newfoundland’s historic places, in and around the St. John’s region. This research project will form part of a permanent collection with Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Digital Archives Initiative.
We will be featuring a selection of short stories about historic places in the province, in the form of short oral history interviews conducted with the people who care about those places. If you have a personal memory about a historic place in Newfoundland and Labrador, and want to add your voice to the Memory Store project, let us know at email@example.com
