Quick links:

Salisbury is a substantial two-storey brick residence built as the home of prominent settler, farmer and politician Donald Reid (1833-1919) between 1863 and 1873. The later part of the house was designed by Robert Arthur Lawson, one of New Zealand's finest colonial architects. The house has architectural and historical significance, as one of the Taieri Plains most substantial estate homesteads built for Reid who played an important role in the development of agricultural practices and had business enterprises that remain important today.
