Explore the rich history of a small Karoo community and the majestic landscape around it
Why was it possible to establish a farm where the village lies today? How could the community survive so isolated and in such a harsh landscape? Who was brave enough to build a road across the Swartberg mountain?
You do not have to be a historian to enjoy the many stories that tell our history! Apart from being enlightened about how early settlers made – and enjoyed – a life, you may even find out what a set of false teeth and a flying doctor have in common.
Prince Albert Cultural FoundationPrince Albert Cultural Foundation Contact: Judy Maguire
The Prince Albert Cultural Foundation plays an active and important role in preserving the history and culture of the area and was recognised as the most active and objective conservation body in the Western Cape for 2014 -2015.
The foundation occasionally offers an outing on the third Saturday of the month.
The topic might be of cultural, historical, pre-historical, geological, musical, culinary, or botanical interest – or a combination of several of the above!
Locals can join the Foundation for R40 per person per annum, children under 18 free!
Visitors are most welcome to attend outings, so if you are in Prince Albert join us to learn more about the village and the surrounding district. A small charge will be made for adults, there is no charge for children.
