The Coromandel Heritage Trust was formed in 2003 to establish THE TREASURY, a purpose-built archive and family history centre in Thames, New Zealand. The Treasury preserves and promotes the history and stories of the people in this region - a region which played such a big part in the early development of New Zealand.
The Treasury houses an ever-growing collection of resources relating to the early history of Thames and the entire Coromandel Region. For the historical researcher, we have a large collection of history books and historical manuscripts as well as many resources to help research your family history, such as newspapers, magazines, photographs, Jubilee books, family records and certificates.
The Treasury is open for visitors and researchers.
Open: 11.00am - 3.00pm Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday.
Except: Public holidays, and between Xmas & New Year.
The Treasury's meeting room, situated opposite the Reading Room in Thames' historic Carnegie Free Library building, is available to hire for meetings, workshops, displays and lectures. It's a unique venue suitable for small groups and exhibitions. Please contact us for more details.
