Story: Volcanic Plateau places

A. C. Baths (1st of 2)

A. C. Baths

A long-standing Taupō institution, the A. C. Baths were named for the Armed Constabulary, who first used them when based at Taupō in the 1870s and 1880s. For many years the bathhouses remained very basic, as is evident in this 1920s photograph.
