Carterton District Council

Pretty stunning to look through these historic images of #Carterton.Carterton is a small farming area of the Wairarapa, 14km southwest of Masterton and 80km northeast of Wellington.

Carterton was founded in 1857. Originally known as Three Mile Bush, and served as housing for workers building the road between Wellington and Masterton. It was later renamed after Charles Carter who was in charge of the building of the Black Bridge over the Waiohine River south of the town.
The town describes itself as New Zealand's daffodil capital, holding a Daffodil Festival each year on the second Sunday in September.

Historic Carterton Railway Station is located west of the town centre off Belvedere Road. The station building at the station is original, having been built when the railway opened in 1880, and has accepted passenger services ever since.
