Remuera heritage walk

What you will see on the Remuera heritage walk

Many single-teacher schools educated Remuera children until the Remuera District School was established in 1873.

Meanwhile, churches of several denominations built up congregations and opened busy Sunday Schools.

Two of the permanent churches built later by the Methodist and Anglican communities feature on the walk, as do two early Remuera schools.

One of the first shops in Remuera was L J Keys' grocery store on the Clonbern Road corner. By 1910, Mr Keys had been joined by George Lawler the bootmaker, The Lancashire Dairy Co, The Post and Telegraph Office, Fred Blott the Chemist, as well as a butcher, fruiterer, confectioner, bookmaker and plumber.
