"The Wattles", Residence of William Park

"The Wattles", Residence of William Park

This twenty-roomed house was the home of two Mayors of Palmerston North and its attractive gardens were one of the showpieces of the borough for many years. The building stood on Section 972 (the western corner of Linton and College Streets), with the main entrance being for College Street. The house was built about 1887 by Mr William Park, a bookseller, who was Mayor from 1893 to 1895. He sold the property to Mr FJ Nathan in 1910 (Mayor from 1923 to 1927), who died there in 1938. His widow Mrs EF Nathan sold the property in 1947 and from that date until its demolition in 1967 the building was used a boarding house. The photograph shown here shows the side of the house facing College Street. The lawn in the foreground is now the site of two modern dwellings (single storey) facing Linton Street.

St John's Presbyterian Church Moves to Highbury

St John's Presbyterian Church Moves to Highbury

This photograph was taken for a story that ran in the Manawatu Evening Standard on 19 February 1973 with the caption, "It looked like a case of "if Mohammed wouldn't go to the mountain, the mountain ad to go to Mohammed" when St John's Presbyterian Church, Palmerston North, was moved on Saturday. The Church wants to get closer to its parishioners, most of whom are now in the Highbury area, so it was moved by a Whanganui firm from Nikau Street to Brentwood Avenue. City Council staff lifted power and telephone lines along Featherston Street as the 26ft high building moved along. It took about three hours for the church to reach the new site where it will be renovated and extended."
