Notes on the Geography of Zimbabwe: Harare: Photo 51

world pictures Zimbabwe: Harare

Far and away the grandest building in the neighborhood is this, now the Public Services Training Center. It was built in 1929 for Ernest Howard, the local manager of Imperial Tobacco. He was an American from Virginia, and he recreated a version of an antebellum mansion. He called it Limbe Lodge. He died soon after its completion, and in 1938 the building became a maternity home. In 1959, renamed Downing House, it became the official residence of Southern Rhodesia's prime minister. Later still, during the short-lived Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, it became the Governor's Lodge.
