5: "Alberton" Auckland Historic Places Trust

"Alberton" is the homestead, built in 1862, of what was originally a 500-acre property at Mt. Albert, Auckland. Bequeathed to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust in 1971, the house, furniture and furnishings were carefully restored and the property was opened to the public late in 1973 as an ornate farmhouse of exceptional size with facilities for entertaining beyond the ordinary. "The New Zealand Historic Places Trust," says the citation, "is to be commended for the care and attention paid to detail in the restoration. This fine effort successfully captures the original period and character of all facets of this splendid farmhouse."
