Troyeville House Blue Plaque - Johannesburg Heritage Foundation

Built in 1902 for K.B. de Kok, this sumptuous twin-gabled stone house occupies a commanding position on the rising ridge and itself enjoys a fine view. By 1904 its grandeur and importance were enhanced by a new owner, U.S Barrett, Master of the High Court. The Salvation Army bought it in 1926 and for sixty years it was the training school for their cadets. Separate accommodation was built for the men. Then social columnist Gwen Gill made it her home. Jennifer Ferguson, singer, songwriter and activist was the last private owner.
