One of the houses inside the Stellenbosch village museum and former home of Olof Marthinus Bergh — once deputy sheriff of the area.
It was built around 1840 on what was part of the Schreuderhuis
plot — first as a single storey building, with the second storey being added in the second half of the same century.
Since then it has been renovated to show the lifestyle of a well off Stellenbosch family of 1840 to 1880, or the same time the Bergh family lived here.
This was also after British rule of the area, with much of the furniture and items inside showing this.What to do there
