Near Hororata stands Coton’s cottage, a typical 19th-century farm dwelling. It was built in 1864 by Bentley Coton who with his wife Sarah bought 50 acres of land at Hororata. The cottage has five rooms and is of cob construction – a mixture of local clay and tussock. The photograph above was taken around 2006.
