Facebook: "Richard Pearse is famous (in New Zealand) because he may have achieved powered flight before the Wright brothers in 1903. He built his aeroplane at his farm in South Canterbury, but he later moved south. Between 1911 and 1912 this small cottage near Milton in South Otago was his home. It has probably not been lived in since he left."
