Designed by noted Oamaru born architect William Gray Young, the Blenheim Public Trust Office building was constructed in 1924. The building is listed as a category 2 Historic Place, by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. Due to Blenheim's proximity to known major fault lines, the building is one of relatively few heritage buildings remaining in central Blenheim.
The building currently functions as a hotel and restaurant.
Support Marlborough Online
Did you know? Marlborough Online receives no funding to operate; all operating costs are paid for as a labour of love by one person. If everyone in Marlborough gave just $1 per year, it would fund significant content development and quality improvement. $2 would be enough to employ a second person part-time, and $3 would allow for two people to work full-time.
