No 7 Castle Hill

Completed in 1825, No 7 Castle Hill is one of the oldest surviving Settler cottages in Port Elizabeth.  It was opened as a historical museum in 1965 and is furnished to show a picture of domestic life as enjoyed by an English middle class family in mid-19th Century Port Elizabeth.  Its the kind of museum that both young and old enjoy with young ones exploring and discovering things they may have never known and the older crowd seeing thing that they may remember from their grandmothers' houses.
