Melrose House Museum
Melrose House was built in 1886 by Pretoria businessman George Jesse Heys. During the Anglo Boer War (1899 - 1902) the Melrose House was requisitioned by Lord Roberts as the headquarters for the British military, shortly after invading Pretoria in 1899. The Peace Treaty of Vereeniging was signed at Melrose House on 31 May 1902, thus ending the war. The Victorian-style home is ornately decorated with lavish carpeting, stained glass windows, and decorative ceiling panels. Guided tours are available by appointment. A fully licensed tea garden is located in the stables at Melrose House, offering light meals and cakes.
An Antique Fair is held every year on 16 December and again on 1 May.
