Old Oak Hotel, early 20th C. Site 13.

The Old Oak Hotel was built by John McIntosh and was first known as the Mangonui Hotel.

In 1906, when the Settlers Hotel in Mill Bay was demolished, the name and licence were transferred to this hotel. In 1910 the proprietor, John Bray, changed the hotel’s name to The Old Oak. At that time there was an oak tree, about 30 – 40 years old, in front of the hotel.

In the following years the building was used as a boarding house, private residence, butcher’s shop, restaurant, craft shop and again as a hotel.
