Old Stone House


Old Stone House


Old Stone House, now the Cracroft Community Centre.

Contributor’s note: In 1969 I lived in the ‘Old Stone House’ (now the Cracoft Community Centre, 30 Shalamar Drive). I was living there as a student while at the University of Canterbury and was a ‘live in Student Caretaker’. Part of the role of the student Caretaker was to help with the buildings restoration.
