Historical Notes: Te Takinga was built in 1820 by Ngati Piako of Te Arawa. In 1886 it was purchased by Gilbert Mair for Sir Walter Buller. It featured in international exhibitions in the 1880s. Buller erected it on his estate at Lake Papaitonga, and after his death his family donated it to the then Dominion Museum in 1906.
