Jan Smuts House


This modest iron and timber building, originally used as a military officers mess, was prefabricated in Britain and then used by the British Army in India before finally making its way to Pretoria (by rail) in 1909. On arrival in Pretoria, the unassembled parts of the house were then taken by ox wagon to the Doornkloof farm (were you see it today) to be used as the family residence of one of South Africa’s most prominent historical figures, General J. C. Smuts (Jan Smuts).

Despite a very active and diverse life, General Smuts saw Doornkloof as home. Both Mr Smuts and his wife died on the property and their ashes are scattered on ‘Smuts Koppie’- the small hill behind the house.
