Most of the historical buildings in town formed part of the Huguenot Seminary that Rev Andrew Murray started in Wellington. Through his influence Wellington became a well-known centre for education and missionary work in South Africa. The buildings are still in use today and their beautiful architecture can be viewed on the historical walking route through town. (Brochures available at Wellington Tourism Bureau)
Other interesting buildings not to be missed are the Dutch Reformed Church with Andrew Murray's statue and grave, the Huguenot fountain in Joubert Park, Wellington Museum, Ouma/Granny's House museum and the Anglo Boer Block House.
Another must for the tourist is a visit to Ouma/Granny's House Museum which houses a unique and priceless collection of days gone by. The most recent exhibition is that of the Anglo-Boer War with voorlaaiers, pictures, war discharge certificates, etc. Dating from the same war is the most southerly Blockhouse built to protect the railway line outside Wellington.
