Woodlands Homestead Project

Woodlands Homestead Project

Built in 1872, this homestead and 98,000 acre farm has plenty of history! This design project started with the scanning, archiving and restoration of 400 images and memorabilia. With the help of historian Lex Riddell and my wife Kerrie Martin, we created a history of Woodlands from recent family history, research, documents and archived images to create an A2 sized 42 page book and DVD that can be read and viewed at the Woodlands Homestead, Gordonton, New Zealand.
