SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday March 7 2017 7 News Heritage homes on display to public SOME OF Canterbury’s most historically significant properties will open their doors to the public this weekend. The Hororata and Beyond Heritage Open Day will be held on Sunday. Participants will be able to journey through time to Canterbury’s pioneering past by visiting heritage properties and museums in Hororata, Homebush, Glenroy, Glentunnel, Windwhistle and Lake Coleridge. Properties opening for the day will include Gunyah Country Estate, Terrace Station, Homebush Stables, Cotons’ Cottage and Museum, Washpen Falls, Glentunnel Museum, Steventon (Lady Barkers Homestead), Rockwood Station, The Point Station, St John’s Church and more. Many of these properties are generally only open by appointment and usually prefer group bookings. A number of properties are offering special activities throughout the day and some will have vintage machinery on display. Organising committee member Karen Meares said all the property owners were passionate about sharing not only their heritage properties, but also the stories of the people who had lived there. “Having all of these properties open on one day allows people to get a great insight into life in the late 19 th century, when the district was the great hope of Canterbury with agricultural and industry development,” she said. “The heritage open day not only gives the community the opportunity to showcase the region’s interesting heritage, but has provided motivation and inspiration for those who are involved in the heritage of the district. The Hororata Community Trust has been a great supporter, which has really allowed this project to achieve all it set out to do and more.” Many of the properties’ stories are intertwined as the communities developed and the pioneers worked to establish farms and industries, such as lime, clay, pottery and coal. •All properties open on Sunday, 9am to 5pm. Tickets $35 each, school children free. This admits you to three properties on the day. Single entry (admit to one property) $15 each. Tickets will be sold at Hororata Domain from 9am on the day.
