SHA's popular publication

Swellendam Heritage Association compiled a publication on routes through the built history of our town


It is with great sadness that SHA must inform you that Henri Barry the owner of the historic farm Lismore near Zuurbraak has passed away following severe burns received in a gas explosion.
Henri was a long time member of SHA from the time of Swellendam Trust. He was fundamental in the efforts to maintain and preserve Zuurbraak . He was also a driving force in the preservation of Malgas and Witsands especially the old Barry church.
. Henri will be a great loss to the community in general and to heritage especially.
SHA send condolences to the Barry family at this tragic time,
