113 MAIN ST – KOUKA COTTAGE
Kouka Cottage is one of the earlier cottages built in the township circa 1860s and, with its verandah and brick chimney, is typical of early colonial cottages of the era.
In 1997, the cottage was sold to the then Greytown Community Heritage Trust for $1, with the trust committing to undertaking its restoration and preservation. The cottage exterior was refurbished by the trust from a derelict state. It is listed as a heritage item in the District Plan and remains of historic, technical and townscape significance in part due to its association with motorcycle legend Tui Morgan who had his garage on the site of the White Swan site. The trust undertakes regular maintenance at the cottage.
