Visit to Marton

Members of the Taihape Museum recently visited the fascinating Kendrick Cottage and the Marton Historical Village.

Kendrick Cottage was built in 1863 by James and Mary Kendrick, early settlers in Marton. Francis, the present owner, has an extensive collection of memorabilia, especially relating to NZ railway and meccano sets. His bottle collection is huge. A fascinating visit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the afternoon we moved onto Marton Historical Village. This is a well maintained and organised museum. Well worth a visit despite the rain.
