Tasman Street Directory Online

Thursday 15 August 2013

Have you ever wondered how your street came by its name? Well, now you can find out.

Tasman District Council has just launched the online version of the Tasman District Street and Place Names directory.

Compiled over several years from a variety of sources, the directory is continuing to grow as more information comes to light.

"It started out being about Richmond township," says Local History Librarian, Karen Dickerson. "But over time it has broadened to include information on street and place names from across the whole District."

Take a look. If your street is not included in the directory and you have information about its origins, get in touch with Karen at Richmond Library.
