Take a step back in time and see how people lived 150 years ago with one of Nelson’s most iconic heritage experiences.
Broadgreen is a charming cottage beautifully furnished and restored to show family life in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The house was built in 1855 for Mr and Mrs Edmund Buxton and their six daughters and is an excellent example of early colonial cob construction. In 1901, the house was sold to Fred Langbein, whose family lived in the house until 1965 when it was bought by the Nelson City Council.
Visitors to the house are given an introductory talk and optional tour.
