Early New Zealand writer Katherine Mansfield was born in this elegant, inner city Victorian townhouse in 1888. She spent her first five years in and around the local area, which would later provide the inspiration for many of her celebrated stories. Her home has now been lovingly and faithfully restored with the help of period furniture and replica wallpaper. A marvellous 50 minute video provides an intimate picture of the writer's early life. The fragrant heritage garden is also worth enjoying on a fine day.Admission fee is charged for individuals but groups can get a discount.
