Bush Church

Whilst Staglands has plenty of birds and farm animals it also has a few 'bush buildings', which are all originals. There's a jail, a smithy, a general store, all from the early/mid-1800s when pakeha were expanding out into the depleting bush.

And of course, the Victorians claimed to be good honest Christians (as they stole land and killed those they had done deals with), so a church is a must.
