Drostdy Museum

The Drostdy in Uitenhage was erected during General Jacob Glen Cuyler’s tenure of office as the Landdrost of Uitenhage from 1806 to 1827. Today it houses the Uitenhage Africana Museum and provides the ideal setting in which to portray the history of Uitenhage and the surrounding areas.
