Auckland Heritage Festival kicks off with a Tour on Historypin

Share on:

This week the Auckland Heritage Festival begins, a fun-filled two week celebration of the city’s history.

We’re excited to be a small part of it as Auckland Libraries, Heritage & Research have created a great Tour which allows you to follow in the footsteps of John Logan Campbell (1817-1912), an influential figure in New Zealand’s history known as ‘the father of Auckland’. Sir John Logan Campbell passed away 100 years ago this year, and this Tour takes you to all around Auckland on a time-travelling visit to the places associated with him.

You can take the Tour here, or on the Historypin iPhone app.

If you want to know more about Sir John Logan, Auckland libraries collections or other heritage festival activities, visit Auckland Libraries’ blog.

And don’t forget to have a look at Auckland Libraries, Heritage & Research Channel which has tons of great pins. Here’s on of our favourites:
