Tour: An Opportunity to Visit ‘Crofton’

Friday 30 August 2019, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

$25.00 – $30.00
Croft residence - Friends local tour

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.

Join the Friends in this wonderful opportunity of visiting Crofton in Ngaio, Wellington.  Crofton was built in 1857 for Sir William and Lady Sarah Fox as a country residence.  Sir William Fox was the second Premier of New Zealand, appointed in 1856.  This early colonial country house is one of the oldest surviving homes in Wellington.

The present owner, Margaret Domett, will explain the history of this historic home and then take us on a guided tour of the house.  We will finish with morning tea/coffee and refreshments.

The Friends look forward to having you on this tour.  Crofton can be reached by taking the Johnsonville Line train from Wellington, alighting at Ngaio.  The house is then a five to ten minute walk from the Station.  It can also be easily accessed by car.

N.B: Please wear flat shoes for this visit to protect the floors.
