Often compared to Chekhov and Maupassant, Katherine Mansfield is one of NZ’s most distinguished authors. Born in 1888, she died of tuberculosis in 1923 aged 34. This Tinakori Rd house is where she spent five years of her childhood. It's now a lovely heritage home with exhibitions in her honour, including a biographical film.
