From Taupo Pa, arrival of the railway, weekend resort and beach baches to the birth of a village, war years, fires galore, skeletons and rusty pistols, Plimmerton has had a fascinating past.

With many photographs, some previously unpublished, early drawings and lithographs, objects and artefacts, posters, poems and postcards, the colourful story of Plimmerton is unravelled.

Who really did arrest Te Rauparaha? How did Plimmerton get its name? Who were the lovers who committed suicide? What happened to the big cheese? Was there a German spy sending shipping information to the enemy? All will be revealed!

The new Plimmerton book will be for sale during the exhibition
