    Where is a good place to learn about the formation of a province or territory, or about the people who live there, or about what gives the area its unique flavour? Many people would probably think of a museum or community centre, but legislative buildings can be just as informative. A visit to a provincial or territorial legislature can be not only a good way to learn about how governments work, but also a chance to see the grand architecture and ornate furnishings that make legislatures good tourism material.

Signal Hill stands near the eastern edge of Newfoundland, overlooking St. Johnís on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, making it ideal as a meeting ground of political, economic, and scientific interests, and in modern times, as a tourist site.
