Description du lieu patrimonial

Mallard Cottage is a picturesque one-and-a-half storey wood-frame house set on a small lot near the road in the village of Quidi Vidi, within the greater municipality of St. John’s Newfoundland. The designation is confined to the footprint of the building.

Valeur patrimoniale

Mallard Cottage was designated because, with its hipped roof and central chimney, it is typical of the vernacular housing built by immigrants from southeastern Ireland in the first half of the nineteenth century.

The heritage value of this site resides in the materials as well as the elements of vernacular design and craftsmanship deriving from Irish-Newfoundland vernacular building traditions. The Mallards, a family of Irish origin, lived in the house for over a hundred years.
