Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House

This Category 1 listed house is one of New Zealand’s most significant social and political landmarks. It was the home of Kate Sheppard from 1888 until 1902, during her most active years of the campaign for women's rights.

Discover the story of Kate's life and family history, her hopes, efforts and achievements, and the legacy of political and social change she contributed to.

Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House is now proudly cared for by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga. The stunning kauri villa sits on an acre of botanical beauty, hidden behind a tall green hedge in suburban Christchurch.
