Montrose Farm – Mpomphomeni

Montrose Farm was expropriated from the Lund family by the Nationalist Government in the 1970’s with devastating consequences. The ANC led Government has just adopted a policy of Expropriation without Compensation, which will have much more devastating consequences if followed through. “The more things change , the more they stay the same” seems to be apt?

On a positive note the old farmhouse. has recently been renovated and houses an interesting Museum. Further images can be found at Gallery- Old Natal Farms – Boston Road Montrose Farm.
