Rangiora & Districts Early Records Society

The Rangiora and Districts Early Records Society was founded in 1960 and is responsible for caring for the Rangiora Museum and local archives.

The Society aims to preserve records and artefacts of Rangiora and the surrounding area.

The committee evaluates what has been offered for it to hold, however, shortage of space means they have to be selective and items with more relevance to other districts are often passed to their museums.

The Society was given part of the old Bank of New Zealand building in 1967 in which to base itself and establish a museum. The top storey was cut in four and shifted to its current site in Good Street, Rangiora.
