Today the Tauranga Historical Society’s vision is the preservation, interpretation and promotion of historical and cultural heritage of the Western Bay of Plenty for the people of the region and beyond. Our key objectives are:
- To foster and maintain an appreciation of places and objects of historic interest particularly in the Western Bay of Plenty.
- To encourage the study and research of local history.
- To manage, preserve and display the Brain Watkins House as a house museum open to the public.
