With the postponement of our much anticipated 125th Anniversary celebration this Sunday and the lockdown in place we will showcase a little of the house, room by room over the coming days and let you know a little about its history and how we use it today.

Caccia Birch House was designed by Danish architect Ludolf Georg West and still stands on its original site.

The original home cost a little under 900 pounds to build.

It was one of the first large houses erected in the city and was built for Jacob Nannestad and his family.

Nannestad was a Norwegian immigrant and a partner in the Richter, Nannestad and Jensen sawmilling firm, which was engaged in clearing bush in the wider Hokowhitu area at the time.
