Murchison: Commercial Stables (c.1890s) (3)
Murchison: Commercial Stables (c.1890s) (3)

  • he Commercial Stables is the oldest-remaining wooden stables in New Zealand, dating from the heydays of Murchison's gold mining and horse transporting time of the 1890s. Despite exploratory expeditions to the area in the 1840s and gold being discovered soon after, it was not until the late C19th/early C20th that Murchison developed into an established town. The town's early hotels were established as accommodation for travellers and as such they also featured stables. The Commercial Hotel was one of the most popular in the area, and therefore the proprietor built the Commercial Stables at the rear of the hotel for the ease of his guests. The size of the stables is indicative of the demand for stable facilities, and the fact that there were several comparative stables in the town is reflective of the town's growth. The Commercial Stables survived the Murchison Earthquake of 1929 (one of NZ's largest recorded earthquakes) and its office area was used as make-shift accommodation. However, with the introduction of motorised transport and it's superseding of horse transportation, by the early C20th the various urban stables in Murchison, and indeed throughout NZ, were becoming obsolete. The stables then became a storage and utility space, and the addition of an accommodation block on the side of the stables meant it continued to be a viable structure. The building has a Heritage NZ 'Historic Place Cat.2' listing (No.1634).

  • I can find no reference to the age of this building, however I spotted its name appearing in an article in "The Colonist" of 02 May 1874... ========== Note the local wildlife heading out in their "ute", to 'cruise' the main street (all 500m of it!).

  • 60 Fairfax St, Murchison The main focus of this museum - housed in the old Post Office building - is on the effects of the 1929 Murchison Earthquake. There are photographs and written accounts of the devastation at the district and the experiences of the local people of the time. The vintage machinery building adjacent to the main museum is a modern building but styled as a barn-type building of yesteryear. Goldmining, sawmilling and agriculture are also themes at the museum, and there is a static display of early agricultural machinery. But most intriguing is the information about the world's first "suicide bombing"...which happened right here in lil' ol' Murchison in 1905![www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/opinion/75765195/Murchison-su...]

  • Fairfax St, Murchison The discovery of gold led to the settlement of Hampden, and the township was surveyed in 1865. The original wooden Commercial Hotel dated from that time. In 1882, the town's name was altered to avoid confusion with another place of the same name in North Otago: it was renamed "Murchison" after a Scottish geologist Roderick Murchison, one of the founders of the Royal Geographical Society. The wooden hotel building was destroyed by fire in October 1927, but a new hotel was constructed in 1928 in its place: "a new solid, rough-cast building reinforced with concrete," according to the hotel's website, "complete with an addition of a Bank of New Zealand office and robust vault to weigh and store the fortunes of local gold-miners and the growing community." The bank suffered damage during the following year's 7.3 earthquake [en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1929_Murchison_earthquake] and [www.geonet.org.nz/earthquake/story/2178128], but the new hotel remained unscathed...

  • Fairfax St., Murchison, Tasman St Paul's Church was completed in 1905, the town's first church. The Nelson region was initially settled from the 1840s as part of the NZ Company's planned settlement programme. However, remote areas such as Murchison were slow to develop, due to distance and difficult access from the main hubs of settlement. Therefore, despite sporadic visits by explorers, and then isolated gold-mining and timber-milling settlements from the mid-1840s, it was not until 1865 that Murchison (then named Hampden) was surveyed and formally established. Access continued to be a main impediment to the development of the town and, until the C20th., it was very much a frontier village. In the late C19th., it's Anglican residents had infrequent access to religious services and instruction and relied on visiting ministers, both Anglican and Methodist, to fulfill their needs, or lay readers. However, after the Anglican community rallied together to make their church building a reality, St Paul's was the base for their resident minister to work from. St Paul's Church is typical of many NZ country churches of the period, a simple design consisting of a porch, nave, chancel and vestry, this later aspect being the only addition to the church subsequent to its original construction. The building is an unabashed timber structure with extensive, and dramatic, use of native timbers on the interior which enhance its Gothic aesthetic. The building is a Heritage NZ Cat.II historic place No.1659.
