Ewelme Cottage

This cottage crammed with objects telling tales of Victorian restraints, standards and clerical family life, was built for the Rev., Vicesimus Lush, so his sons could attend the grammar school nearby, while he attended to pastoral duties elsewhere.

Acerca de

Ewelme Cottage in Parnell was built for the Rev. Vicesimus Lush and his wife Blanche Hawkins. Vicesimus died at Ewelme in 1882 and Blanche had the cottage enlarged, living there until she died in 1912. The house was inhabited by their descendants until 1967 when it was bought by the Auckland City Council and leased to the Heritage New Zealand.

Ewelme, which has remained virtually unaltered since the 1880s, is filled with family furniture and possessions, including a fine collection of 2,000 books, hundreds of pages of sheet music, original artworks and a vast array of everyday domestic objects familiar to a colonial middle-class family. Ewelme is surrounded by a delightful well-preserved 19th century cottage garden.
