The cottage was built in the late 1700s or early 1800s. It is one of the last remaining structures of its vintage and is of substantial historical significance. It was designated a Registered Heritage Structure in 1988 by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador. Renowned American artist Rockwell Kent lived in Kent Cottage from 1914-1915.

Kent Cottage at Landfall
Brigus, Newfoundland and Labrador
You will probably be coming into Brigus from the Conception Bay Highway (Highway 60) via Station Road if you are coming from Roaches Line (Highway 70). That will take you toward the harbour, and you will eventually be on North Street. At the end of North Street, turn left up the hill (don't go straight, where the big new houses are) to Rattley Row, then turn right toward The Battery. The road out to the cottage is narrow and gravel, winding along craggy outcrops, so leave your car in the parking area where it begins and walk out to Landfall (5 minute walk).
