History

An 18th Century house was demolished when this building was constructed. The land on which it stands probably already belonged to Marthinus Beyleveld in 1785 when he was granted the adjacent Rhenish complex land. In 1793 the site was acquired by PA Myburgh. The house later belonged to Rev JC Kronlein.
