A visit to the McHardy House in Cullinan is a step back in time. All of the guides are members of the Cullinan Heritage Society and will ensure you have a wonderful visit. The museum is closed on Tuesdays but is open on all other days of the week from 10h00 to 15h00.
The building was the first in the town of Cullinan to be erected way back in 1903 and was home to William McHardy who was then the general manager of the Cullinan Diamond Mine. McHardy lived with his wife Evaline, four sons and three daughters on a tent on this stand while the house was being built.
Two of the daughters May and Evalina lived in the house until their deaths in 1984 at the ages of 98 and 94 respectively. The Premier Diamond Mine purchased the contents of the house from the McHardy estate shortly thereafter and turned the house into a museum.
When you visit you’ll find the home much like it was when the sisters died and you will hear interesting stories of the lives of the McHardy family on your tour.
