More Info →Nairn market garden, College Street

This artesian well, on John Nairn’s property, was the first well bored in Palmerston North. Water was found at 210 feet and was used to water the Nairn’s glasshouses. The bore was situated between Nairn’s house and College Street in what is now Nairn Crescent. John Clark, 3rd from right, worked for John Nairn for many years and was active in the Salvation Army. The other men are thought to be from the boring firm of G H Blanche.
