Historic Caccia Birch House in Hokowhitu, Palmerston North is open for viewing each Sunday afternoon in May.
Featuring beautiful handcrafted rimu timber panelling, lead light windows and watercolour artwork painted in 1880's by Lydia Lardin (Ethel Birch) aunt of William Caccia Birch.
Explore the house and gardens, learn about the past owners and how the house was rescued from dereliction and destruction in the eighties by PNCC and many supporters. Then brought back to life in the nineties to become a thriving venue with stories of the past to tell.
With autumn upon us, the deciduous trees are stunning colours and leaves are falling. Pick up a guide to the several protected trees on the property, they are amazing specimens!
This is also a good time to view the venue if you are planning on holding a wedding or function. Feel free to approach our friendly staff for a chat or pick up one of the brochures from the foyer that contain all information on making a booking.
PS. Only half the house will be available for viewing on Mother's Day due to the hosting of Artisan Kitchen's High Tea, the main room upstairs will be unavailable. Apologies for this.
