Buy a copy of Historical Stanford on Foot for R10 at Stanford Tourism and enjoy a trip through yesteryear. The heart of Stanford surrounding the market square was proclaimed a South African Heritage area in 1995. The original farmhouse of ‘De Kleine Rivier’s Valey’ is one of the oldest houses still in existence in the Cape Overberg.
Learn more about the changing fortunes of Sir Robert Stanford and the stories behind many of the original houses in this heritage village. Find out where Lady Anne Barnard stayed on her trip to the inland and where the undertaker’s daughter liked to do her homework.
Stanford village history is rich and full of colourful characters. Visit one of the few remaining market squares in South Africa, dating back to 1785, and let your mind drift back centuries to a time of horses and oxcarts, and livestock and excited children running around on this very square.
