Established in 1819, the Kerikeri Mission Station house (also known as Kemp House) was built in 1821-22, and is New Zealand's oldest European building. The Stone Store was built as a storehouse for the Church Missionary Society in 1832-36, and is the oldest stone building in New Zealand.

The surrounding garden is the oldest continuously cultivated European garden in New Zealand. The buildings contain relics and displays of their own history. Kemp House and the Stone Store are notable as scarce examples of Regency buildings in New Zealand and are remarkable as European structures built in a Maori world.
