Early Map of Wellington - Wellington County District

This early map of Wellington County District shows a number of important historical sites, including Māori pā, pathways, wāhi tapu, and pre-1840 battle sites, as well as battle sites from the New Zealand Land Wars. A detail of Paremata Redoubt is also shown.

 

The map comes from a folder of Public Works maps of early Wellington (mainly copies rather than originals).
