Originally constructed as a local school but forced to shut down decades later due to dwindling numbers, Cardrona Hall now serves as a community hall and an occasional church for the tiny town. It’s important to note that this picturesque building would not exist without the labor of Chinese migrants, who helped build the New Zealand region of Otago during the Victorian gold rush of the 1860s.
