First settlers’ reunion picnic at Mauriceville

These Scandinavian settlers had obtained 40-acre (16-hectare) blocks of land in 1872 and 1873 under provisions for special settlements laid down by the Wellington provincial government. By the 1890s, when this reunion was held, they were well established in the new country.
