Broadgreen homestead in Stoke, with its two storeys and 11 rooms, is unusually large for a New Zealand cob building (made from a mixture of mud and straw). It was built from around 1854 as a home for the merchant Edmund Buxton, his wife and six daughters. The historic house is managed as a museum and is open to the public.
