Trust celebrates 25 years milestone

Friends, trustees (current and former) and volunteers gathered at Ngaio Marsh House to mark 25 years since the Ngaio Marsh House and Heritage Trust was formed.


The House would not be open to the public were it not for a monumental effort by the local community to retain it as a house museum.


The Trust was formed to fundraise and buy the property in 1992, with the House opening to the public in 1996. It was, and remains, a huge undertaking for a small voluntary-run trust to continue to maintain this incredible property and our unique collections.


Thank you to everyone who has contributed to making this special place available for people to enjoy and learn about the life and work of cultural icon Dame Ngaio.


We’re looking forward to building on the achievements of the last 25 years, and working in partnership with the community to maintain this wonderful legacy in the years to come.
