History  for Fraserburg, Northern Cape Province, South Africa

In 1851 it was decided to start a new Dutch Reformed Parish for the growing number of stock farmers in the area. The site of this new parish was the farm Rietfontein. In the same year the new village was surveyed and named Fraserburg in honor of Reverend Colin Fraser, the father of the wife of the Free State’s President, MT Steyn. Of particular note in this town is the Peperbus – a six sided building with one door and one window built in 1861. It was designed as an office by the Reverend Bamberger and has been used as such by the Municipality Market Master, the Magistrate and the Church. Also of interest in Fraserburg are the many well-preserved Victorian-style houses with their elaborate wrought iron ornamentation, which may be found up the side streets.

Ou Pastorie Museum.

This building was erected in 1856 to accommodate the first reverend of the newly founded congregation, Rev Carl Arnoldus Bamberger. With roof made from reeds, white washed walls, windows with small panes, elaborate front entrance and discharge pipes, all this give the building a typical Cape Dutch appearance. At one stage, it was the only formal building in the village.
Amazingly, the four inside walls are rounded and it still has the original yellowwood floorboards and some of the original yellowwood ceiling boards. In time some of the ceiling boards warped and were replaced in the early nineteen hundreds with pine. At present the building hosts a museum and fossil display which is well worth a visit.
For access to the museum, and for historical and cultural tours, and tours of the Gansfontein Paleo surface, contact Marthinus Kruger: 084 873 0098
