The Stone Store & Kemp House - Kerikeri Mission Station 1822, Kerikeri

(4.3/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
New Zealand's oldest surviving stone building, The Stone Store & Kemp House - Kerikeri Mission Station 1822 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.

  • A really lovely place to visit, a historic park of lots of interesting things to look at. A must visit in Kerikeri! 
  • The car park and approach route have been changed since I was here last, but for the better - plenty of parking space, free-range chickens with absurdly splendid feathers, and an easy walk across the ...  more »
