Pompallier Mission information
Built in 1842 to house the Catholic mission’s printing press, this rammed earth building is the mission's last remaining building in the Western Pacific. A staggering 40,000 books were printed here in Maori. In the 1870s it was converted into a private home, but it is now restored to its original state, complete with tannery and printing workshop.
