Russell Heritage

Russell Museum enjoys telling some of the fascinating stories from the town’s history. Our local paper Russell Lights carries regular feature articles called Heritage Corner which feature these early gems about the town and our people.

A selection of them have been reproduced here. When you visit Russell, look out as you may well recognise some of the places and names from our past.

Heritage Corner articles:

Fire at the Duke of Marlborough

Whangamumu Windy Harbour
