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.

Session 4. Sept 1, at 2 pm at Ferndale House, 830 New North Road. Presented by Mark Stoddart, Senior Archivist.

How to locate details of your property through central Government records held by Archives NZ Auckland Office.

Please register to attend the workshop by emailing info@mtalberthistoricalsociety.org.nz or Phone: 846 4509

 Review of Recent Event

On the afternoon of the 14 April 18 hardly souls braved the wet conditions to join our bus trip to Crown Lynn and Clayworks Museum and then onto West Lynn Garden and Butterfly House. Fortunately the only time it rained was while we were in Crown Lynn reminiscing over the patterns of cups and dishes we remembered from the 60s and learning things we didn't know about the pottery works from our very able guide Hannah. 
West Lynn Gardens were not far away though most of us hadn't even known the garden was there.  Because of the time factor we did not do the garden justice but vowed we would come back another time.  We had a delightful afternoon tea in the butterfly house with homebaked goodies from Judith and Janet.  Everyone agreed despite the weather it was a most enjoyable afternoon.
