Celebrating the History of Upper Hutt's Streets - Golder's Cottage

We are challenging Upper Hutt residents to come to the Cottage and learn about the history of their street/neighbourhood.

The information is contained in a new book: "Upper Hutt Streets-the stories behind their names" by Researcher Lynly Lessels Yates. (Proceeds from the book's sales go to Golder Cottage.)

Lynly will be in attendance on October 23 and 28.

Health & Safety

We have a wheelchair ramp for access to the Cottage proper. The Upstairs children's bedrooms are not accessible for wheel chairs.
