Historic, Iconic and Much-Loved Buildings of the Tararua District
13 September 2022
Every district has buildings that are iconic reminders of the lives and stories of the people within that district. We asked the people of Tararua District to identify the buildings and structures that tell our stories and created a photo book as a permanent record.
The book – Historic, Iconic and Much-Loved Buildings of the Tararua District - is a collection of just some of the photographs we received. Not only does the book highlight the amazing photographic talents of our people, it also includes snippets of history for many of the buildings included.
The cover page was the winning entry “Port Motors - Ormondville” by Pam Gill. As part of her prize Pam also received the first copy of the book from Mayor Tracey Collis. Further copies will be gifted to our local libraries and the National Library in Wellington as a permanent archive.
The book is available for purchase at all Council Services Centres, Libraries and the Tararua i-SITE in Woodville. (Soft cover $30.00 and hard cover $40.00).
