Victoria House, Port Elizabeth's oldest house, has been in crisis for a number of years. It was in a reasonable state up until the late 1990s before being occupied by vagrants and prostitutes. In 2005 it was sealed up by the health and saftey department. In recent years work has been carried out but local activists are concerned that many of the house's important features have been lost.
