Ohinemutu (?). 1931. Box 122). Identified in Cresswell's book "Maori meeting houses of the North Island" as being at Tarewa, Rotorua. See also image at APG-1797-1/2 of Kearoa Meeting House which was shifted from Horohoro to be alongside Taharangi Meeting House circa 1921, before being shifted back to Horohoro at a later date.
