Le Roux Townhouse
In earlier years, many South African farmers had a townhouse (dorpshuis) in the nearest town to make overnight or longer stays possible. These townhouses were purely functional. But the Le Roux Townhouse – which now forms part of the C.P. Nel Museum-complex – was different. It was built in 1909, in the midst of the second Ostrich Feather Boom (1900 – 1914) and money was no object. It was designed by one of Oudtshoorn’s best-known architects, with the most modern innovations, and built with the best of imported and local materials. Be sure to put this on your bucket list!
