Similar to San Francisco’s famous Painted Ladies, these row houses will delight fans of Victorian homes. The Six Sisters were built along Marine Parade in the late 19th century. Architect Robert Lamb was hired by a prominent businessman to design near-identical, two-story residences for his six daughters. Surprisingly, the wooden structures suffered little damage during the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake. They are now mix-use of apartments, boutique shops plus a bar and grill. You will find their image on T-shirts, posters and other souvenirs throughout Napier.
