Topic: Tauranga Historic Buildings & Places

Topic type:

There are many historic places in Tauranga, and a few historic buildings that have survived the drive for progress. 

One such place is the 1847 Georgian-style Elms Historic House standing on the oldest European heritage site in the Bay of Plenty. The Church Missionary Society's Te Papa Mission Station was an important part of Tauranga's history and was established by Archdeacon Alfred Brown in 1838. Also on the site is New Zealand’s first library, and the oldest library standing today, completed in 1839.

Other such heritage sites include an archaeological site in Masonic Park, and Wharf Street in Tauranga.
