TUTIRA, THE LEGACY OF WILLIAM GUTHRIE SMITH
SATURDAY 28 NOVEMBER 2015
A remarkable New Zealander, a remarkable legacy. William Herbert Guthrie Smith died on the 4th July 1940 and is buried at Tutira. He left the 2000 acres that remained of the station in trust to the New Zealand public as an educational and recreational reserve. Spread over 90 hectares in rolling Hawke’s Bay hill country and overlooking the picturesque Lake Tutira, is the Guthrie Smith Arboretum.
The afternoon’s programme will involve a talk by one of the Trustees, visiting the Homestead garden, the 1950 Tutira Church, “the Hangar”, providing an interesting backdrop of bush to the homestead, and time to wander over some of the trails.
