Smuts House Museum

Jan Christiaan Smuts (1870-1950) was twice president of South Africa and member of the British War Cabinet during both the First and Second World Wars. He was instrumental in establishing the both the League of Nations and the United Nations.

In 1948 he supported the Fagan Commission's Report that recommended the relaxation of laws regulating the influx of blacks into the cities. This he believed would not only improve the labour supply but also prevent the social problems associated with migrant labour. The National Party campaigned on just the opposite platform. Smuts lost the election, the National Party ushered in their Apartheid policies, and the rest was history.

He spent the last 40 years of his life at his farm in Irene, called Doornkloof. Here he was able to study what he loved best - botany. It is this modest farmhouse that has been converted into the Smuts House Museum.
