Notes on the Geography of South Africa: Swellendam 1: Houses: Photo 15
Off Voortrek Street, this is New Morgenzon ("New Morning Light"). It was built in 1751 as the residence of the secretary of the landdrost, a term abolished in 1827 and replaced by Resident Magistrate. The house was eventually privatized. It served as a girls' school from 1855 to 1875 and eventually became a home for the aged. Inadequate for that purpose, a new home was built, and New Morgenzon was restored to its 1827 appearance and made into a community center.
