Discover the Rich Heritage of Sandstone Trust: Where History Meets Innovation

Step into a world where the past intertwines seamlessly with the present, where the legacy of generations is preserved and celebrated. Welcome to Sandstone Heritage Trust, a beacon of conservation and innovation nestled in the heart of the Eastern Free State, South Africa. Founded upon a rich legacy dating back to the 1840s, Sandstone Heritage Trust is not just a preservation initiative; it's a living testament to the enduring spirit of heritage and progress.

A Legacy of Stewardship: In 1995, the torch of stewardship passed from the Wille family to the present owners, marking a continuation of a legacy that spans over 170 years. The Willes' commitment to preserving not just the land but also the traditions and machinery of their forebears laid the foundation for what Sandstone Heritage Trust stands for today.

Preserving History, Cultivating Innovation: While many farms in the region embraced modernization, the Willes recognized the value in preserving not just the artifacts but also the essence of a bygone era. The farm became a living museum, where vintage tractors like the Lanz Bulldog and John Deere 720 diesel still plow the fields, honoring tradition while embracing practicality.

A Sanctuary for Heritage: Sandstone Heritage Trust isn't just about preserving its own history; it's a haven for collectors and enthusiasts alike. From agricultural machinery to military vehicles, from narrow-gauge railways to ox wagons, every artifact finds its place within this living tapestry of heritage.

Beyond the Museum Walls: But Sandstone Heritage Trust is more than just a museum; it's a dynamic hub of activity where the past meets the present. Dedicated staff ensure that every piece is meticulously maintained, while visitors are invited to experience history come to life through guided tours and hands-on experiences.

At Sandstone Heritage Trust, the past is not just a relic; it's a vibrant, integral part of the present. Whether you're a history buff, a collector, or simply someone who appreciates the beauty of tradition, there's something here for everyone.

Come, be a part of history in the making, at Sandstone Heritage Trust.
