Abandoned Hebron Mission

In 1831, German Moravian missionaries founded a small settlement in northern Labrador. They sought to evangelize the Inuit people of this harsh but beautiful region, a process that had begun with other missions in Labrador since 1771. But while Christianity did take root in the local communities, death, abandonment and traumatic relocations were soon to follow.

The Hebron settlement consisted of a series of often interconnected buildings, including a church, mission house, store, forge, and carpenter’s shop. The architectural style was typically Germanic, most notably in the long main building with its steep, elongated roof, dormer windows, and distinctly European cupola.
