Set in ten acres, and representative of a Taranaki Pioneer Village from 1850 to 1950, complete with village green and lake. It comprises 40+ authentic, mostly original, buildings, several being pre-1900. All are furnished and filled out in the period and most can be entered. The Village Homestead features possibly the only known example of a 'Kauri Bath Tub made entirely of this native timber. The comprehensive Stratford Hospital Museum, run by a team of retired nurses, is believed to be the largest in NZ.
