Council archives combined

Archives from five councils within the Horizons Region will now be accessible in one central location, following the opening of the new Archives Central building in early October.

This is a new initiative in local government archiving, resulting in the combination over 130 years of history from Manawatu, Horowhenua, Tararua, Rangitikei and Horizons Regional councils. The new archives will be located in the Coach House Museum in Bowen Street, Feilding.

Archives from these councils as well as Wanganui, Palmerston North and Ruapehu are also being listed with a brief description online. This is part of a collaborative project led by Manawatu-Wanganui Local Authority Shared Services Ltd (MW LASS). Find out more.
