History

The erf on which this house stands was deducted from erf H in 1799, when it was acquired by CE Ackermann, who sold it to FJ Hauptfleisch in 1812, who probably built the house. 

Alterations

The thatch was replaced with iron and its eaves lifted after 1860. It has since been restored and given back its thatch as well as a dormer gable. The fa├žade woodwork is c1870.
