49 Tiriti o Main, Ōtaki

He mea whakatū i 1918 hei wāhanga nō te Pēke o Aotearoa, e tū ana te whare BNZ i waenga pū o te wāhi maharatanga o Ōtaki.  Ko te whare nei tētehi o ngā whare tawhito rawa e tū tonu ana i te Tiriti o Main.

I ngā tau 1960 i riro i te Kaunihera ā-rohe o Ōtaki te whare BNZ.  Atu i 1966 ki 1989 he tari whakahaere mō te kaunihera taua whare, i te mutunga, he mea āta whiriwhiri he whakataunga e pā ana ki ngā rā o tua o te tāone me ngā tāone whakaawhi.  I 1989, i noho a Ōtaki i raro i te mana o te Kaunihera ā-rohe o Kāpiti i te whakakotahitanga o ngā mana ā-rohe puta noa i Aotearoa.  I whakamahingia te whare e te Kaunihera hei Pūtahi Ratonga mō Ōtaki.  Ināianei kei te rīhingia te whare BNZ e te Kaunihera ki te Ōtaki Heritage Bank Preservation Trust.  Ko tēnei Wāhi Whakamahara – he whare ‘Category II’, ā, ināianei ko te kāinga tēnei o te Whare Tāonga o Ōtaki e whakamātakitaki ana, e pupuri ana i ngā kōrero tuku iho a ngā iwi e rua o Ōtaki.
