Must see · Architectural Building · Historic Site
New Zealand's oldest surviving stone building, The Stone Store & Kemp House - Kerikeri Mission Station replaced an earlier wood structure in the 1830s. Constructed by mason William Parrott and a team of Maori workers, the building served as a trading post of a missionary community. The store sold farm produce to passing ships, and European goods to the local Maori population. Today, the well-preserved building offers local souvenirs and serves as the starting point for tours of the nearby mission house, another structure dating from the first half of the 19th century. Just uphill from here you can join a signposted historical walk leading to a wooden Anglican church, a photogenic building erected in 1878.

  • Love the history. Had a great time. Nice gift shop picked up a couple of things for grandson. Cafe was welcome break, all staff we met were all so very nice.  more »
  • I just love all the stone floors and the old bricks. A lot of different things available on sale to buy. The tour would have been worthwhile but we were too late for that.  more »

  • A big thank you for patching up my partner with your first aid kit. This store has plenty to look at and as much to buy. Great gift ideas if you are struggling to find a gift.
  • A very good retro place to be at.
