The Period sandstone house and adjacent coach house was build in 1898 shortly after the inception of the town in 1892. The rodawel and stable were erected in 1920 when the house belonged to the town-miller a Mr Myburgh. At the same time the giant Apricot tree next to the rondawel was planted. At that stage Fouriesburg was proclaimed the capital of the Republic of the Orange free state.According to legend the house played an important role in the Anglo Boer war of the 1900's. The house had a large cellar, which as been filled in the later years and said the Boer war hero General Christiaan de Wet came into town after dark and hid in the house - his horse was taken care of in the cellar. When the town fell to the British in 1900 the then British Commissioner of the Police took over the house and set up the flag pole in front of the house - which is still there today. When Myburgh took over the house from the police, he is said to have removed the blue police lamp in front of the house. Read more
