14 Parnell Street, Rawene, New Zealand, Rawene

Clendon House was once home to James Reddy Clendon, a ship owner and trader who was in the thick of the earliest Maori and Pakeha interactions. James was a witness to the New Zealand Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of Waitangi, and was the first United States Consul. When he died, his wife Jane was left with little money and huge debts and you can follow her storey at Clendon house as she worked to save the house, pay off her debts and educate her children.
