Colonial Hospital

 The Gables was a colonial hospital Governor Grey commissioned in the late 1840s for poor Māori and Pākehā patients. It was eventually bought by Mary King and moved from Te Hēnui to Brooklands, where it became a family home. In 1934 the family gifted the building to the city and in 1985 it became an arts centre.
