Paihia mission house (2 o 2)

Paihia mission house

The third Church Missionary Society mission station (after Rangihoua and Kerikeri) was set up at Paihia in 1823. It was known to some locals as 'Heaven' because of its contrast with the nearby whaling village of 'Hell', or Kororāreka (later renamed Russell). This 1830 watercolour, possibly by Henry Williams, shows a croquet lawn and the house where Williams lived with his wife, Marianne.
