Event details

Three Auckland Council historic buildings will be open for viewing:

  • Journeys End - a replica of an 1847 Fencibles cottage
  • Laishley House - built in 1858 for Rev. Laishley, minister of the Congregational Church
  • Blockhouse - built in 1860 as part of Auckland’s defenses.

The houses will have some rooms furnished with locally sourced items in keeping with the era. The other rooms will have collections of memorabilia to remind you of your ancestors.

There will also be photo displays of the Fencibles journey to Onehunga.

At 2pm on 13 October, Guiseppe Gallina will be giving a talk in the Blockhouse, about the 2nd New Zealand Division’s Italian campaign.
