Aparima Hotel, built approx 1866
These are the final days of Aparima - Five Peaks, a little exhibition at the Otautau Museum. This display features pictures of Aparima's founding families - the Becks, the James', the Keens and others, plus many class photos from the Aparima School. Pictured above is the Aparima Hotel, built approximately 1866. Look at all those tussocks!
The museum is expanding its opening hours to include Wednesday afternoons in addition to being open Sundays, 2-4pm. So you'll have more opportunity to glimpse these rare photos while they are here. The exhibition ends Sunday, 31 August. The next display will feature the Holt Park sports days and sports complex. Contact Graham Barkman to contribute photos or memorabilia and to find out how you can get involved in the museum.
