This Dinner Gong has recently been donated to the Museum by members of the Hughes family. There is some discussion around where it came from, as it it was thought to have originally been in a hotel in Waihi that was burned down. The Junction Hotel was mentioned, but Waihi did not have a hotel by that name.
Further information about this item would be useful, so please contact us if you know more. It is on show in our Social History room.
