Historical Notes: The meeting house in the photograph is Raukawa I. This was built in 1853, but by the late 1920s had become delapidated. When this photograph was taken the carvings had been removed as the meeting house was undergoing reconstruction. It was replaced by the present Raukawa II which opened in 1936.
