Nelson Heritage Homes

Contents

A key feature of the Nelson Heritage Festival, in 2018 and 2019, was the tour of some of Nelson's Heritage Houses, organised as a fundraising event for the Nelson & Tasman Cancer Society.  Many of the homes had not previously been open to the public.

Each house has a unique story. Researcher Sarah Ryder, Life Story Writer (Forget-me-not Life Stories) volunteered her time to find information about each of the properties, and working with the home owners, the stories were documented, shared with tour participants and recorded as Prow stories.
