History of Your House Workshops  

Uncover and explore the history of your house.  Have you ever wanted to know about when your house was built and who lived in it before you?  This is one of the main questions Mt Albert Historical Society fields from local residents. We want to make it easier for you so this year the Mt Albert Historical Society is running a series of free presentations at Ferndale House to enable you to exlpore the history of your home.   There are five presentations in the series. Feel free to join us for the whole series or just one.

Review of Recent Event

On Sunday 29 July the Society visited Belmont House in Stillwell Road for their mid-winter function.  Diane and Allen McCardle, the owners of the house for the past 10 years, were our generous hosts.  After mulled wine, coffee and a delicious afternoon tea provided by the committee and served in Albert house china we gather to hear some of the house's history from Diane and Allen and a previous occupier, Jan George, who lived in the property from age five with her mother and grandmother. (Jan's grandmother owned the house from 1944 to 1974). Members of the Ashton family who had also owned by house earlier were also with us.
