Old Granary Building Tour

The Old Granary TourJoin Culture Connect SA on a tour of The Old Granary Building, a recently refurbished 204-year old former granary that was declared a Provincial Heritage Site in March 2017. Built in 1812, this historic structure initially served as a house and a bakery. It later became the town granary, then a magistrate’s court, a post office, government offices, and a women’s prison. It currently serves as the home of the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation in order to restore and rehabilitate the building from its colonial history of war, slavery and later apartheid, to a peace centre, offices, restaurant and exhibition centre.

The tour is led by the City of Cape Town’s Senior Heritage Professional, Margot van Heerden as well as Kobus van Wyk of GAPP Architects.
