Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society

The Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society is a registered charity that owns and operates Katherine Mansfield House & Garden. It was formed by Oroya Day in 1986 to purchase, restore and care for the house and garden at 25 Tinakori Road.

Through Katherine Mansfield House & Garden, the Katherine Mansfield Birthplace Society runs an annual programme of events and activities. As well as public talks and other events, we offer a range of activities for young people designed to foster creativity, such as our annual Katherine Mansfield Short Story Competition, regular school holiday creative writing workshops, and free craft activities for families. We also welcome regular preschool, primary and secondary school groups for tours.
