The Drostdy Museum fascade

The Cape Dutch style Drostdy building in Uitenhage was completed in 1809 during the time that General Jacob Glen Cuyler was the Landdrost of Uitenhage.  The building houses the town's Africana museum following the historical development of Uitenhage and the surrounding districts.  The museum contains various exhibits which include historical artifacts from the town, toys, porcelain, clothing and an archive library.
