“Waimarama” was built in 1905 for Mr James Alfred Nash and family. The house covers 5000 square feet, is built of Rimu and Kauri and has a 14 foot stud. The paneling in the entrance hall and in the billiard room is Rimu. The Rimu doors are three inches thick. Mr Nash was both Mayor (1908 – 1923) and Member of Parliament for Palmerston North (1918-1935). In 2017 the house was removed from the section to make way for a housing development. After sitting in storage for a year, the house was relocated to Norfolk Road in Carterton.
