The Old School of Mines in Kimberley dates back to the late 1890s. It is where both Wits University and Pretoria University originated prior to the school's transfer to Johannesburg. It is a declared Provincial Heritage Site. Click here for more details via wikipedia. The historic building is government owned.
Unfortunately the building has been neglected for some time. This is an incredibly sad state of affairs for such an important site.
