Uteara original homestead.

contributed by MClark, taken in 1953
(contact MClark about this picture)

Picture taken around 1953 by Ron Wetzel (my father) when he and his wife Ina first won Uteara, then know as Kennedy's Corner, in a War Service Land Settlement ballot for returned soldiers after WW2. He then improved this house with screens around the verandah. When supplies were more available and a more reliable income was coming in from wool sales he then built a new homestead.

Bonzle has pictures of Uteara spanning 33 years taken from 1953 to 1986:
