Bunnythorpe is a small rural community, close to Palmerston North. It was established in the 'Manchester Block' in the 1870s. The Bunnythorpe Hotel was built in 1892 by A Fredsberg. It closed in 1973 after the new Bunnythorpe Hotel opened next door, and was pulled down in 1981, after being unused for 8 years. Shown here are the leasees of the new hotel Leo and Dorothy Montgomery of Palmerston North.
