Visit the Smedley Farm to experience the heritage of Oakleigh. See the artifacts that connect the people of the past and the present. This farm has historical significance as it reflects the dominant economy of North Auckland through its kauri gum trading. The extensive forests and waterways provided important sources of kauri. Edwin Smedley traded kauri gum. He grew his business by establishing a gum store near the wharf. He built a boarding house for rent to cater to the itinerant gum diggers in the area. Within a few years, he expanded his residence into a 10 room farmhouse with the addition of a wide lean-to, wrap around verandah and balcony. This house is reminiscent of wealthy Whangarei villa style residences.
