Visit the Māngungu Mission House and step back in time to 1839, the year in which this beautiful Wesleyan mission house was completed.

Enjoy the tranquility of this historic treasure – site of the largest signing of the Treaty of Waitangi – set against the stunning Hokianga Harbour.

A 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.
