'Kuier' (Afrikaans for visit) at Cornelis Jacobus Langenhoven's private residence and gardens in Oudtshoorn which has become the museum for his life and a tribute to the roots of one of South Africa's official languages, Afrikaans. A member of South African Parliament and a literary force he promoted the young Dutch descendant language of Afrikaans to its official acceptance in 1927.

C.J. Langenhoven was a founder of the Afrikaans newspapers 'Freemason' and 'Die Burger' (still in print today) and translated many literature works into Afrikaans during the struggle to have the language recognised. He wrote many original prose in 'die taal' (the language) but is best known for his original lyrics to South Africa's original National Anthem 'Die Stem' (The Voice) part of which has been worked into the new official National Anthem of the new democratic nation.

His historic home where he died is preserved in its original state with his grave and tombstone on site; from cradle (1873) to grave (1932).
