Elms Mission House

Elms Mission House Review

Built in 1847, this was the first Christian missionary station in the Bay of Plenty. The lovely late-Georgian house, named for the 50 elms that grew on the property, was home to descendants of pioneer missionaries until the mid-1990s. You can explore the lush grounds, but the real appeal lies in the main house, the small wooden chapel, and the collection of furniture, crockery, and other period items.
