Heritage Sites

Vergelegen's heritage core consists of the Homestead, Library, Mill Ruins, Slave Lodge site and surrounding gardens.

The residential Homestead, dating back to the 1700's, with each room authentically furnished, reflects the layered historicism of the over 300 years of Vergelegen's existence.  The Homestead also houses an Exhibition Corridor, comprising a series of pictorial panels detailing the various eras of history as well as significant visitors to the Estate.

The Library at Vergelegen, originally a winery built in 1816, was converted to a Library during the Phillips era.  It is now home to a priceless collection of Sir Lionel Phillips books including ancient and modern history, travel journals and a small collection of Afrikana and French volumes.
