|Waipu Museum's Miniature Pioneer Cottage|
Made by Bob Tillet, these scale models give an excellent idea of what types of dwellings the early pioneers constructed. Timber in the area was plentiful so early buildings were built of wood rather than stone as they would be in Scotland.
Kitty Slick's House was built in the 1880s for Duncan Slick and Rebecca McLean. From the 1930s till her death in 1950, it was lived in by a single woman, Catherine (Kitty) McLean.
