Livingstonia Mission Station


The Stonehouse Museum


The Stonehouse is one of the most famous houses in Malawi and perhaps the only one built out of stone.  The Stonehouse was built for Dr Robert Laws who was the founder of the mission station back in 1893.  The house was built out of local stone to depict the style of houses built in Aberdeen Scotland where Dr Laws was born.  The house is now partly a guest house and partly a museum.  The museum is well worth a visit and it will transport you back to the beginnings of the mission station and the struggles of the missionaries as they tried to establish a presence in the North of Malawi.



This very impressive Church stands proudly at the southern end of the mission station and is worth a visit. It boasts a wonderful stain glass window depicting David Livingstones travels in Africa.

Livingstonia Church is linked with John Knox Church, in Stewarton, Ayrshire, Scotland.
