More than 50 years ago the Kihikihi police house was home to Constable Stan Williams.

Stan, now 91, had been a policeman for the previous two years in Hamilton. He was married there and lived there for some time.

The police house was built in 1907, for 700 pounds, but had been unoccupied for some time as the last constable had been committed to Tokanui Psychiatric Hospital. The station closed in 1962.
