Share your story about High Street

The plans for the ‘revitalisation’ of the Central Business District are under discussion. Among the provisions mentioned is the ‘pedestrianisation’ of High Street to provide a tourist orientated shopping experience in one of Hermanus’s older streets.

International experience tells us that tourists are interested in the history of streets like this. For this reason the Hermanus History Society is compiling a history of High Street from the first plots sold in the late 1800s to date. We are also looking at dwellings and business premises that front onto Main Road or Mitchell Street and have a back entrance in High Street.

The street has some renovated buildings that are over 100 years old, but, unfortunately many dwellings have been demolished and replaced by modern structures. However, even that process is worth documenting, especially as several prominent Hermanus families lived in High Street.

The History Society is keen to collect any information that the readers of the Hermanus Times have about the history of High Street.

Documents, photographs, letters are all welcome. And we will gladly send a member to interview you if you wish to share your memories with us. Please contact Dr. Robin Lee: 028 312 4072 or robinlee@hermanus.co.za
