Heritage Analysis
SITE & STRUCTURE DESCRIPTION: A much older, single-storey and double-pitched vernacular cottage (with roof loft) that had a Cape Revivalist front gable and stoep applied in the early 20th century. The layering of the site is clear.  
History: Originally a missionary community for emancipated slaves established by Barnabas Shaw following
the abolition of slavery at the Cape in 1834. The original lots were rented out to 800 freed slaves.
