Archives

The Archive was created and launched in 1987 to recognise a need to protect the valuable documentary material and records of Waitaki District. The Archive has grown over the years and now collects important records about the community of Waitaki District. These records include photographs, records of local clubs and societies, records of local businesses and individuals, local school records and newspapers.
