The Stone Store & Kemp House - Kerikeri Mission Station, Kerikeri

4.5
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Kerikeri
New Zealand's oldest surviving stone building, The Stone Store & Kemp House - Kerikeri Mission Station replaced an earlier wood structure in the 1830s. Constructed by mason William Parrott and a team of Maori workers, the building served as a trading post of a missionary community. The store sold farm produce to passing ships, and European goods to the local Maori population. Today, the well-preserved building offers local souvenirs and serves as the starting point for tours of the nearby mission house, another structure dating from the first half of the 19th century. Just uphill from here you can join a signposted historical walk leading to a wooden Anglican church, a photogenic building erected in 1878.
