About Buried Village
The Buried Village is a historical site with historic beginnings.
Currently one of New Zealand’s most visited historic sites, the Buried Village has origins which can be traced back to the Depression, and the 1931 arrival at Te Wairoa of Reg and Vi Smith who, along with their young sons, travelled in a borrowed car to what was a derelict cottage on overgrown land. That moment of arrival began what would become a long and inspiring story of hard-work, vision and dedication.
Nearly 80 years on, and in the tradition of generational duty, a third generation of Smiths continue the guardianship of the Buried Village.
Building on the handwork, blood, sweat and tears of their forbearers, they have developed the site into an award winning heritage attraction that is visited yearly by thousands of people the world over.
True pioneers in the growth and development of tourism in New Zealand, the Smith family have a proud history of family commitment that spans over eight decades. They continue to grow with their dedicated family of staff and ‘honorary Smiths’ who are committed to providing you with a truly memorable experience.
