More Info →Totaranui, Door to Kitchen

This house was built in Fitzroy Street in 1875, making it one of the earliest buildings in the city, and is now situated outside Te Manawa Museum. The timber used in the flooring, wallboards, joints and rafters are of totara and the skirting, architraves and doors are all of kauri shipped from Auckland. The chimney bricks are stamped with the name Charles Tricklebank the town’s first bricklayer. Built by Peter Manson, the house was gifted to the city in 1970 by the Pascoe family.
