Olveston was built for Dunedin businessman, collector and philanthropist David Theomin as a family home furnished with fine art, furniture and artefacts purchased from all around the world. Olveston was gifted to the City of Dunedin in 1966. Olveston is a time capsule as little has changed inside the house since it was occupied as a family home between 1906 to 1966.
