Find out more about the restoration of Government House in Pietermaritzburg


Restoration architect, Robert Brusse, will be doing an illustrated talk titled ‘The Restoration of Government House’ at 11 am on Saturday, April 16 at the Tatham Art Gallery in Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg. The lecture is indirectly related to the current exhibition, Building History.

The oldest part of this elegant old building at the top of Langalibalele (Longmarket) Street dates from 1848, and all the Governors who lived there until 1910 added to it.

In later years it housed the well-known Pietermaritzburg Teacher Training College. After a bad period of neglect, the building was restored by Brusse and his team between 2004 and 2014.
