Hermitage (Aoraki/Mount Cook, N.Z.)

At Aoraki/Mt. Cook. The first building erected in 1884 under the direction of Frank Huddleston. sited near the terminus of the Mueller Glacier. In January 1913 debris-laden flood water broke through the Mueller moraine wall and swept around the hotel. At the end of March, a second flood from the same area poured through the Hermitage, damaging it beyond repair. With growing demand for accomodation a new building was opened in 1914. Present building constructed in 1961 to replace former building destroyed by fire on 16 September 1957. For examples of the old Hermitage before damage from the Mueller Glacier flooding in 1913, and the new Hermitage built in 1914, see photograph album (Sutton-Turner Album 3, PA1-o-485).
