The Karaka Historical Society Inc. was formed in 1997 with the objective of preserving the history of the area. This small group of volunteers from the wider Karaka community have
taken the Karaka Museum from humble beginnings under the stage of the War Memorial
Hall, to the modern purpose built Museum now located alongside the hall on Blackbridge
Farming equipment, tools, maps and photographs, household items, war artefacts and memorabilia, family histories, musical instruments, toys, clothing, handwork, and the
histories of St Margarets Church, Karaka and Te Hihi Schools.
Blackbridge Road next to the Karaka War Memorial Hall
