Record: Update to Horowhenua District Council archives February 2017

We have just completed the import of almost 7,800 catalogue items to the website, virtually doubling the number of entries in the Horowhenua section. This includes:

  • Valuation records, 1954-1989
  • Rates records, 1958-1989
  • Maori Land rating files, 1923-1986
  • Deeds and Legal Agreements, 1901-1988
  • Horowhenua Lake Domain Board records, 1906-1959
  • County Staff records, 1936-1989
  • County and Levin Borough Contracts, 1950-1988
  • Foxton Mayoral Portraits, 1888-1989 (includes scans of the photos)


The most significant part of this work is over 5,000 letters and documents received by Horowhenua County during 1886-1924. They have all been listed to an individual level and cover a huge variety of subjects. This puts the finishing touches on a project we have been working on for a while and is a major upgrade for the Horowhenua database listings.
