C.P. Nel Museum
In 1972 the CP Nel collection was brought to its present home - the former
Oudtshoorn Boys' High School. As a result of this, the sandstone building,
with its beautiful clock tower, was saved from demolition. The building as a
whole dates back to the second "ostrich feather boom" (1900 - 1914) and was
declared a National Monument in 1981.
