This weekend is the Discover Kapiti Heritage Group open museum weekend.
The theme for the weekend is the Story of Transport across the region. Each Museum will share stories and displays regarding different aspects of transport.
Paekakariki Station Museum have a new display showing historic photographs of Centennial Highway, Paekakariki Hill Road and the Wellington & Manawatu Railway.
In conjunction with this display we have also produced a book outlining the different forms of transport that have been used throughout the Kapiti Region. Michael O’Leary, Paekakariki local writer and poet has produced the book on behalf of the Station Museum.
The book will be available for sale at the Museums and Paper Plus in Coastlands. Cost $ 15
In the book are historic photographs of road and rail travel throughout the region along with a section on aviation history and mentions of walkways and cycle ways. The book describes the various forms of transport and is informative and easy to read.
