History

"With nos 108-112, this property formed part of the farm De Nieuwe Molen, granted in 1750 to Landdrost en Heemraden. It was subdivided in 1796 and the erven of nos 112 and 116 were bought by Johannes Victor the following year. His widow sold no 112 to her son Jacobus Daniel in 1825, while another son, Wynand acquired no 116 in 1836. It was bought by Gysbert Reitz in 1851, who replaced the ground floor windows in the original openings. The house was occupied for many years by his son-in-law Dr Cornelius Smuts, who was probably responsible for the second floor"
