Mirrielees House

Est. 1917.  When Alexander Mirrielees bought a chemist’s shop on the Strand in 1910, he was intrigued to find that when there were no boats berthed at the wharves, known as ‘no boat days,’ businesses in the Strand closed their doors and the proprietors went fishing. He built this weatherboard house with a corrugated iron roof and during World War I acted as Tauranga’s Recruiting Officer.
