"Macrorie House Museum, a landmark of cultural and historic significance in Pietermaritzburg , is to be closed down. The decision, made by the museum's board of trustees, has been prompted by reduced funding [by Province] and threats to the collection and the building as a result of criminal activity, which added to the museum's financial burden." Quoting from The Witness 21 June 2016
The actual building appears to be in good condition. Without a use the risk of rapid deterioration increases dramatically. Please use this thread to add background and updates.
Thank you to John Deare from the Natal Inland Family History Society for sending the information through.
