Hy-Many House Blue Plaque - 2014

Parts of this house date back to the 1860s, making it one of the oldest structures in Johannesburg. It started life as the Boschkop farmhouse before being transformed into a grand country estate by Randlord John Dale Lace at the beginning of the twentieth century. In the late 1920s, Tom Kelly acquired the estate and renamed it Hy-Many in honour of his family home in Ireland.
