Hinemihi at Clandon Park

The Tarawera eruption of 1886 was thought to have been caused by a demon named Tama-o-hoi, who long before had been imprisoned in the mountain by Ngatoro-i-rangi. The eruption devastated a large area, rendering it uninhabitable for many years. In the village of Te Wairoa, the meeting house Hinemihi was one of the few buildings that survived that night. Many people took shelter within it.
