Demolition of Public Trust Office, 470 Main Street

Demolition of Public Trust Office, 470 Main Street

The Public Trust was established in 1872. In Palmerston North the Public Trust grew rapidly earning a permanent branch office in 1919; by 1937 it had a staff of fifty under the control of Mr C Freyberg, District Public Trustee. The building shown here was opened in 1922; in later years many extensions were required, including a partial second floor being added and extensive improvements on the ground floor completed around 1936. The building was demolished in August/September of 1978 to make way for the new courthouse building. See also ; ‘Swamp to City’ pg 138.
