History in the Hutt

By Bellevue Gardens Establishment

04/29/2010 The Bellevue Gardens has a long history dating back from the early settlers in the valley. The original land on the site currently known as Bellevue Gardens belonged to William Molesworth, later sold to Alfred Ludlam who built the first house and developed the gardens and a farm. The site then passed to James McNab who built the main homestead for accommodation of paying guests. He went on to develop the land further and turned the property into public/zoological gardens including many native and unusual plants, and animals that included exotic birds, squirrels and even monkeys (now unheard of in New Zealand except in the Zoo) The property became a licensed premises in 1901 and carries on the fine tradition to this day. Although the property was subdivided in around 1906 into several smaller areas (including 3 acres that became Te Omanga Hospice) The Bellevue Gardens still provides accommodation, a lovely Garden Bar/ Restaurant and Sports Bar Something for everyone along with extensive off street parking.
