Hopedale Moravian Mission Complex Registered Heritage Structure

Hopedale, NL

Registered Heritage Structure


The Hopedale Moravian Mission Complex is the largest, continuously used Moravian complex on the north coast of Labrador. Constructed between 1817 and 1897, the buildings show design influences from the vernacular styles of Central and Eastern Europe and are fine examples of Moravian architecture in Labrador. The site, in an exposed area close to the shoreline, has been occupied by a Moravian mission since 1782. The designation includes the footprint of seven buildings – the provision house, the mission house, the church, the dead house, the storehouse, the gunpowder hut and the boathouse – and the surrounding landscape.
