Salvation Army Church

History of the Salvation Army Corp
Long Pond



In 1908 John & Elizabeth Eason decided to inquire about the possibly of starting a S.A. Corps in Long Pond. They meet with Col. Reese, the head of the S.A. in Newfoundland and was granted permission and given a financial contribution to find land and build a citadel. With land donated from Mr. Abraham Dawe and the hard work of a few dedicated people, the first citadel was built with a seating capacity of approximately 40 people. Services began with the first Corps officer Lieutenant Langmade and John Eason became the Corps first Sergeant Major. In 1925 the citadel was enlarged to accommodate the growing congregation and a day school.

In 1959 under the leadership of Captain and Mrs. Harold Duffett, a new and larger citadel was opened and was the church home for the congregation until its last worship on Oct 13, 1985. On October 19, 1985 a new multi purpose facility was opened by Lieutentant Colonel William Kerr. The church family has grown considerably over the years and has accomplished much.
