Kemp House and Stone Store (Kerikeri Mission Station)

246 Kerikeri Road, Kerikeri Basin.
Kerikeri, Northland
Kemp House, built by missionaries in 1821, is the country's oldest wooden dwelling, while the neighbouring old Stone Store, dating from 1833, is the country's oldest stone structure. The garden surrounding Kemp House is the oldest continuously cultivated garden in New Zealand.

The road bridge which crossed the river next to the house and store has now been replaces with a major new highway built upstream. There is parking across the river and the historic area is now accessible from the north via a new pedestrian bridge.
