History Restored

Seddon House, a brick, timber and corrugated iron construction, is a Category 1 historic place on the New Zealand Heritage List, Rārangi Kōrero.

It was built between 1907 and 1914.

Heritage New Zealand – Pouhere Taonga – will own and manage the Edwardian Baroque-style building, also known as the Government Buildings and Courthouse. As part of the restoration Seddon House will undergo seismic strengthening and be refitted for use as offices for DOC.

In this video, taken at the beginning of the drive for restoration, Bruce Smith, Mark Patterson (NZ First MP) and Tanka Davidson (WDC Councilor) kick some ideas around about how the dream could be realised.
