Molly Dwan's Tea House

Coordinates: -45.052210, 168.008940

In the early 1930's Molly Dwan protected by her dog Roy, built a tea house 'East Lodge' to the right of the road, sheltered from southerly weather below the terrace before East Branch Bridge. She planted a garden and vegetable garden, carefully fenced to keep the deer out. She later married Stan Shore who was medical attendant to Marian Camp and Homer Camp.

It would not have been as isolated a place as it now seems, road engineer Stanley Walker lived in a house just across the East Branch.

Sadly nothing remains of her stone walls or cottage.
