The Kerikeri Mission House (sometimes known as the Kemp House, after a missionary family that occupied it) is New Zealand’s oldest standing European building. Built by missionaries and Māori sawyers and carpenters in 1821–22, this simple wooden house was occupied until 1974, when it was presented to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
