Havelock Museum, Marlborough

Account profile image
The Museum was initiated in 1973 by Norman Henry Brayshaw B.E.M. and the Havelock Lions Club.

Originally the disused Methodist Church of St. John was used to house machinery and tools used in the timber industry, the first industry in the area. Further items from the 1890s Gold Rush in nearby Wakamarina were added.

Ownership of the Museum passed to Marlborough County Council and then, in 1992, to the Havelock Historic Society Inc.

Also in 1992, the building seen in the foreground of the photograph was donated to the Museum Society by Mr Jack Shand. It was originally the Havelock Suburban Hall. At present this building is where the weekly Flea Market, the Museum's fundraising initiative, is held. It is intended that it will later be used as an extension to the Museum to house displays and exhibitions.
