HOUSE NAMES

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Before street numbers were introduced, many Mt Albert houses had names.

Some street names have changed – where appropriate, current names and numbers are in brackets after the name in the source. See the Mt Alberts Streets A-Z page for more details about name changes.

This page is very much a work in progress. Please help us by adding any information you have in the “Leave a reply” section at the bottom of the page (your message will not be publicly visible). If you would prefer to email direct, please use this link. If possible include a note about where you found the information (e.g. a link to an article found on Papers Past, or a note that the source is an unpublished family letter).

“When houses have names, they acquire an anthropomorphic presence, somehow causing the four walls to become more than the sum of parts”.
