Clendon House – Meet Hokianga’s gutsiest woman.
Step back in time and explore the home of one of Northland’s most prominent historical figures – James Reddy Clendon, a trader, witness to the Treaty of Waitangi, Magistrate and New Zealand’s first US Consul.
Crammed with historic treasures belonging to the Clendon family, Clendon House is a heritage goldmine.
Hear stories about early life in the Hokianga – one of New Zealand’s oldest bicultural communities – including the moving story of how James Clendon’s young widow Jane worked hard to pay off a mountain of debt in order to keep Clendon House in the family, and indirectly play an important role in preserving this stunning piece of early New Zealand heritage.
