Opposite the Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein is the Fourth Raadsaal, one of the city's finest buildings. The foundation stone was laid by President F. W. Reitz in 1890 and the building was completed in 1893. The Fourth Raadsaal is a Renaissance-style building in red brick with a prominent dome and a portico of Ionic columns.
The last session of the Parliament of the old Boer republic of the Orange Free State was held here before the occupation of Bloemfontein by British forces in March 1900. Today, the building is home to the Free State Provincial Legislature.
