The Village Museum, Stellenbosch

The Stellenbosch Village Museum is currently made up of four houses of historical interest and their gardens. These homes each represent a different period in the architectural development of Stellenbosch. The houses are Schreuderhuis, Blettermanhuis, Grosvenor House, and O.M Bergh, and their interiors and gardens have been beautifully restored, furnished, planted and decorated to illustrate the particular style and taste of the time that they represent.

Schreuderhuis was built in 1709 is documented as the oldest town house in South Africa, it was also fortunate to have been one of the houses that survived the first great fire in Stellenbosch. The era represented in both the interior and in the garden of this home is from 1680 to 1720. In true pioneer spirit much of the furniture for this home was hand crafted from locally available materials

Blettermanhuis was built in 1789 by Hendrik Lodewyk Bletterman, who was the last magistrate of Stellenbosch to be appointed by the Dutch East India Company. It has been restored and furnished to illustrate a wealthy Stellenbosch home from around the period of 1750 - 1790.

Grosvenor House was originally built by Christian Ludolph Neethling in 1782, and added to by successive owners until it reached its present appearance in 1803. A large garden and furniture from the early 19th century give character to this home, which represents the era 1800 to 1830.

O.M Bergh house, was originally the home of O.M Bergh, and had a thatched roof and gables similar to those of Blettermanhuis. The house was altered to look as it does to this day during the during the 19 th Century and is a typical mid-nineteenth century home with wall-paper, furniture and accessories from the period of 1850 to 1870
