Butler’s Farm (also referred to as Obelisk Station) is located in the area known as
Fruitlands, just off State Highway 8 between Alexandra and Roxborough. The
physical address for the site is 1151 Alexandra-Fruitlands Road.
The complex is set back somewhat from the road and consists of a number of
different buildings: the original main dwelling house, the original outbuildings, and a
modern bungalow. In addition, several gates, fences, water races etc, relating to the
original site survive. The buildings are currently undergoing an extensive renovation.
The site is registered with the NZ Historic Places Trust, Register No. 3240, Category
