In the early 1860's William Rawson Brame had a vision to establish a classless, nonconformist society in New Zealand.
On May 29th 1862 the migrant ships "Matilda Wattenbach" and "Hanover" departed from the London Docks bound for the Albertland Settlement in New Zealand with the first of over 3000 settlers.
The Albertland Story chronicles their trials and tribulations.
The Heritage Centre at the Albertland and Districts Museum in Wellsford houses extensive records, memorabilia, artifacts, and other items relating to Albertland from the 1860's.
