Olveston Historic Home, Dunedin Overview

The Olveston Historic Home is an authentic home that shows the lifestyle of a wealthy merchant family in the early 1900s as it was occupied by the family from 1906 to 1966. It was opened to the public in 1967 and has been maintained in its original state ever since, barely changing anything about the house or the objects within it. It was designed by Sir Ernest George for the family of David Theomin, who was a rich businessman in Dunedin and also a collector and philanthropist. The two children did not have any heirs which is why when the last occupant, Dorothy Theomin, who was the daughter of David Theomin, died in 1966, the house and its contents were gifted to the City of Dunedin.
