Kedar Heritage Lodge and the Paul Kruger Country House Museum are pleased to announce that on 6 April 2019, five blue plaques will be unveiled for the Kruger farmhouses at the historic farm Boekenhoutfontein, where Kedar Heritage Lodge is now located (one plaque for each of the four farmhouses, and one for the Old Schoolroom).
Blue plaques are internationally recognised symbols for marking buildings of historical significance. The blue plaques at Kedar are being placed in conjunction with the Magaliesberg Association for Culture and Heritage, which has initiated a programme of placing blue plaques in the Magaliesberg region.
