    De Oude Drostdy was built in 1804-7 by Louis Michel Thibault (1750-1815), a French-born South African architect and engineer who designed numerous neo-classical buildings in the Cape Colony. One of the oldest buildings in Tulbagh, the Drostdy originally served as the colonial Magistrate's complex, and today is a national monument and houses the local museum. The building has been restored three times: after storm in 1822, fire in 1934 and earthquake in 1969. The present lot is therefore an important record of Tulbagh before the 1969 earthquake, which left much of the town destroyed.
