Drosdy Museum Complex (3): Mayville
We spent the morning of Saturday 27 April in the museums in Swellendam. First we visited the Drosdy and Old Gaol and then we walked to the last building of the museum complex, Mayville.
The ground was originally part of the Drosdy property but it was sold in 1846 to Daniel de Bruyn. He built the T-shaped house between 1853 and 1855. I changed owners many times and in 1974 was left to the museum by Nita Steyn.
