Parnell Heritage’s purpose, as defined by its constitution, is to further the preservation, study, knowledge and dissemination of information about the heritage of Parnell, with an emphasis on the people, space, buildings, natural environment and history, all of which combine to define the heritage of Parnell.
We host regular presentations showcasing Parnell’s history, walking tours of places of interest, and other heritage related events. Your support, either through membership or donation, will help to achieve our aims. We have many interesting projects for you and your family to become involved with – or just come along and learn more about Parnell’s heritage.
The Parnell Heritage Incorporated Society held its first official meeting on 17 March 2005, when 33 people gathered at the historic Strand Hotel. Since that formative gathering, the Society has grown into one of the largest in New Zealand, with over 150 members.
