Historic Church Street Walk

Depending on your interest levels the tour can be as long as two hours, as I weave you through the history of the valley and the centuries of colonial development which came to create Tulabgh. The reconstruction of the street after the earthquake of 1969 will be unpacked in its sociology-political situation to understand why the street was restored as it was. Where possible we will go into some of the houses to understand the development of Cape vernacular architecture from 1745 to 1902.

The building is a stunning example of almost 300 year old architecture. A bit disappointed that inside the usual church furniture has been removed. The pews etc have been replaced with some very fine examples of cape furniture, cabinets, tables and clocks etc typical of the era. The cemetery is interesting and it would seem that some crisis ended the lives of many children in the early 1800's. Note: the church is closed to visitors between 13:00 & 14:00.

If you find yourself in Tulbagh there are two places that you should visit. The eathquake museum and De Oude Kerk. The latter is full of interesting furniture dating back to the 1800's and you will learn all about the founding ministers who pioneered this quaint little village.

We visited all the museums in Tulbagh as we love history. This church was the highlight of my visit to Tulbagh. I really enjoyed to walk through the graveyard behind the church. People were also burried inside the church which i found very strange and interesting. The furniture dates from many years ago and we saw some beautiful pieces. Worth a visit.
