The West Coast Fossil Park invites you to attend their morning talk:
A Window into the Past of the Historical Farm, Buck Bay.
This morning talk will be presented by John Duckitt
The land was originally granted in quitrent to Laurens Johannes and Jacobus Petrus de Jongh; with the accompanying survey dated 1827. However, according to Hans Fransen, its history goes back to the early days of the VOC when the house possibly served as the home of the supervisor of the lime kiln that operated from here from the early 18th century together with accommodation for labourers. This long T-shaped house with a simple holbol gable and an attached outbuilding lies close to the sea. From 1870 until fairly recently it belonged to the Duckitt family.
