Herbert John Linthorne, (Bert) was born in 1889 at Bonavista. In 1924 he married Lizzie Groves. At the age of 14, Herbert left for California. While there he built, restored and sold houses. After his return to Newfoundland, now in his early thirties, he built a home in Bonavista in a similar style he learned to build while in California. This style of building was unusual for Bonavista. It housed his own general store on the ground floor and an apartment style home on the second floor. When Herbert first opened his general store in 1924, he dealt mainly in dry goods and hardware but he also had a side business as a salmon exporter. In 1966 Herbert daughter, Marguerite was asked to rent the first floor space which previously occupied her father’s business in order to develop the Bonavista Museum. In 1997 the Bonavista Museum moved to a new location at the Ryan Premises National Historic Site and Marguerite retired from her position as Bonavista Museum curator. For many years the building remained unoccupied until Bonavista Creative purchased the building in 2015 to preserve its historical significance and unique style of architecture.
