28 Main Street (Circa 1877) — 2 Comments

  1. Thank you for the excellent articles and photos of the historical buildings in Knysna. Have you written about the building that now houses the Police Station? My 2x Great Grandfather, Gerrit de Graeff co-owned the building which housed the firm Thomas Prince & Co. (c.1861-1870). I am fairly advanced in my family research, and would like advice about where in Knysna I can get more information about my ancestor who came to the Cape from Amsterdam in c.1850, and after living in Mossel Bay, worked in Knysna, before taking up the post of Secretary to the Graaff Reinet Board of Executors.

    • I recall an article but i may be mistaking that with the Old Gaol. Choose the History category on the side menu bar and all will come up. All credit goes to the Historical Society. Try their Philip Caveney – hopefully he can point you in the right direction – caveney1 at telkomsa dot net. Thanks for your input.
