Fransie Pienaar was born in 1897 in Prince Albert and left after school to study music at Sullivan College in Cape Town. After marrying and returning to her home district, she started collecting antiques to the extent that she soon needed to dedicate an entire room in her home to her collectables!
This collection then grew to fill a hall donated by the Dutch Reformed Church and then to a house loaned to Fransie by the Prince Albert Council. This house was built in 1906 and also served as a hospital from 1952 to 1978. The collection of museum items is still growing today as Prince Albert inhabitants continue to donate to this worthy cause.
