Travel back to 1800's
Nestled in the middle of surrounding suburbs of Auckland is this collection of buildings representing a Fencible Village of the 1850 period. The wooden buildings in the village are original, and brought to this site for conservation, restoration, and education. It's my fourth visit to the village within the last 10 years and I can't see anything that changed at all.
The house pictured above is the Puhi Nui Homestead, and it's the biggest house in the village. Inside the building:
Thomas Eckford's Farm Homestead
The Howick Court House
Private John Briody and Private Edward McDaniel's Fencible Cottage
Early Settler's Sod Cottage. Unfortunately it's cordoned off during my visit so I can't take a photo of the interior.
Charcoal Burner's Camp & Kiln
Sergeant Barry's Cottage
And finally, inside the Wesleyan-Methodist Church.
