Templeton Flax Mill Heritage Museum

Templeton road, Otaitai Bush, Riverton

Take a step back in time! A great stopping place as part of the local Heritage Trail - the Templeton Family owned and operated a Flax Mill on this very site. A visit to this museum will reveal how this happened in the "good old days" and enlighten you to the wonderful way flax can be used in this day and age. A short film aids in understanding the process required to transform flax to a valuable and usable commodity.Then guests are treated to a working demonstration of the Mill in action. A valuable outing and learning exercise for the whole family.

If you are in Riverton - Mark this spot in your plans as a must do before you leave the area!
