the Māngungu Mission House and step back in time to 1839, the
year in which this beautiful Wesleyan mission house was completed.
the tranquillity of this historic treasure – site of the largest
signing of the Treaty of Waitangi – set against the stunning
Wesleyan mission house built in 1838-39 overlooking the Hokianga
Harbour and the historic mission cemetery. Here on 12 February
1840 the third and largest signing of the Treaty of Waitangi took
place. The house was designed and the construction supervised by
the Rev. John Hobbs who lived there with his wife Jane and family
from 1845-55 when the station was closed. It is furnished with
missionary items, portraits of missionaries and their main
protector, Patuone, and relics of the days when nearby Horeke was
a ship-building yard.
