More Info →Davey residence, Kairanga

The original Davey residence was constructed by Sam Davey, a farmer of Kairanga, about 1887 and the right hand portion added later. Sam Davey was also a contractor and voluntary mailman in the Kairanga area from 1896-1924, when rural delivery was introduced. The house was still standing in 1990 with shingles under the iron on the roof and newspaper dated 1887 pasted on the interior of the wall boards under the wallpaper.
