Join the Petone Historical Society on a tour along historic Patrick Street, Petone.
Patrick Street is the site of some of the world’s first state housing and an architectural heritage gem of Lower Hutt. Following an international architectural competition, seven different designs by prominent NZ architects were chosen. The 37 houses completed in 1906 are still largely intact and lived in.
In 1984 the registered properties in Patrick Street and adjoining Adelaide Street constructed under the Workers’ Dwellings Act 1905 were declared part of an Historic Area by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
The tour will be conducted by locals who can explain the history and ongoing story of the street in considerable detail.
The tour is limited to 25 people.
