The Goetz Fleischack Museum dates back to the mid- to late-1800’s, when the homes were magnificently furnished in a Victorian style that may sometimes be considered as being “over the top” by today’s standards.
Situated next door to the main building, this museum is on the corner of Gouws and Potgieter streets. It was, originally, the home of Potchefstroom magistrate, Andreas Marthinus Goetz, between 1870 and 1881. It is the last of the New Market Square townhouses that characterised this period and is, therefore, of particular interest to locals and visitors alike. On being refurbished, a luxurious Victorian influence dictated the style, giving it all the beauty and opulence of its former glory.
