Abandoned 1800s House

The oldest house in the area, this original dwelling dates from 1854.  Antique furniture has been stolen from inside, and kauri planks have been ripped off the house by thieves, causing the walls and roof to collapse on one side.  Restoration attempts were made on this historic farm house about a decade ago but have been sadly abandoned since the burglaries.
