Lot 11 DP 186 (CT CB26K/287), Canterbury Land District
The following text is from the original Proposal for Classification report presented to the Board 1 July 1993.
Walnut Cottage is one of a group of three surviving limestone buildings situated adjacent to the Kimbell Hotel. It was built in 1878 from local limestone by T Foden (Builder) and F Brehaut (Stonemason). Architecturally it is a good example of the use of stone in South Canterbury buildings.
The cottage is historically significant because of its former use as a post office, and its association with the early development of Kimbell township.
Builder: T Foden
Stonemason: F Brehaut
