The Germans in Samoa 57


The Stunzner family home, at Tanugamanono, which Fritz designed and built in 1906, is an interesting blend of Teutonic and tropical influences. It still sits on the western side of the main road, though heavily modified. The house was reportedly confiscated from the Stunzners by the NZ Administration after the First World War as part of the war reparations policy.
