Provincial council building

Provincial council building

Southland was constituted a province, with its own council, from 1861 to 1870. Built in 1864 for a Masonic lodge, this building was bought by the council for its meetings in 1866. It was later used by the Invercargill borough and city council, and was acquired by the Historic Places Trust in 1979.
