This historic building was gutted by fire on 8 December 2016. It is an absolute tragedy for the owners, the city and the country. The building is one of the oldest in Pietermaritzburg (circa 1862) and is a declared heritage site. Many famous political prisoners including Gandhi were held here. Please use this thread to add background and updates on its restoration.
