In 1861, the Old Presidency building in Bloemfontein was built in the spot that was once the British Major Henry Warden's farmhouse. In January 1938, it was declared a national monument under old NMC legislation.
The beautiful Victorian style building is now a museum for the public to admire. It is devoted to the 3 presidents that lived here, and features fascinating paintings, furniture, and ornaments. It is also used for art exhibitions, concerts, and theatrical performances.
