This high roofed house was built by Unwin Moffat when the station moved from The Gardens on the Lucheche Stream to a site about 14 mile down the Kasama Road. The Station later became a staff training centre and was the first home of the Outward Bound School that later moved to Mr Laskie's House Kitula on the Mpulungu Road.
