Hundreds of flats in Dunedin have been named since the 1930s. On the 12th March 2009 I created this map which identifies the majority of named flats I am aware of and for which I have name and address details. It continues to be updated regularly.
The description of the item will include the name(s) of the flat, for example: 48 Howe Street was named Emanuera in the 1970s, but more recently has been known as The Haunted House.
Using the flats map
Open the large map view [ ] to see a list of flats by address and name. You can also use the search function within the map to find a name or address. Clicking on a house icon will take you to an option to view a link to Facebook, Flickr or appropriate page on this website if there is further information about the flat. Of course, you’re welcome to share your story!
There are a many flats not on the map because of missing address details – please check the list and help fill in the blanks!
