Road works in the Horahora District

The first local body in the district was the Cambridge Road Board in 1868, whose immediate duty was to open up road communication with Hamilton. From then until 1890 the foundation of the present system of roads was laid down.

In many cases these roads have been named after the pioneers of the district and a record of those that are known follows. I wonder if people realize the history that is lost when authorities change the names of roads?

If you have any further information that can be added to this record please contact Eris Parker at the Cambridge Museum.
