The history of a city is just as important as its future, which makes Nairn Street Cottage in Wellington particularly important as it’s the city’s oldest original cottage. Built-in 1858 by Willliam Wallis who, along with his wife Catherine, arrived by ship to Wellington in 1857, the cottage saw three generations of the Wallis family experience life here. Visitors gain an insight into life over a century through a tour of the cottage with an expert guide and can enjoy an exhibition detailing the history and effects on society next door. This beautiful cottage with a heritage garden is open for tours on weekends during winter and every day during summer months. Where the visitors are looking to reminisce or show the next generation how life changed for them, this is a beautiful way to spend an afternoon in the fringes of the city.
