Wool and Feather Barons Houses : Michelin's recommendations
Local farmers struck it rich in the 19C thanks to the wool and ostrich feather trade. They built magnificent homes, now wonderfully restored, in the primitive Karoo or Victorian style. You can see them on a stroll down Church Street, Cascade Street or Stockenström Street.
