Canterbury Caledonian Society

Established in 1882 by Scottish migrants who feared a decline in the recognition of their heritage unless something was done to preserve it. Home of the Canterbury Caledonian Society was the Caledonian Hall, located at 135 Kilmore Street, until is was destroyed in the Canterbury earthquakes of 2010-2011. It was originally registered as a Category II historic place (#3095).
