  • Ngai Riukiuta, descendants of the Tainui voyaging canoe, settled on the Monte Cecilia site in the 1300s!
  • In 1872 an attempt was made on the life of then owner of the old homestead, Thomas Russell, by a disgruntled associate, Cyrus Haley, who took eight shots through the windows at random!
  • Designed by leading architects Edward Mahoney & Sons and built by Keane and Jenkinson, in the Italianate style made fashionable by Queen Victoria’s Osbourne House, the price tag was £20,000 – a huge sum in the 1870s.

The event is part of Artweek Auckland 2020.
