Steytlerville Open Air Museum and Family Crests

Steytlerville Open Air Museum and Family Crests



As you enter Steylterville you will witness family crests ahead of you. To your left, you will see the Open Air Museum of farm-related implements. Spend a few minutes walking around them and take in the feelings associated with being in a farming community.

In 2003 flags were erected on the main street depicting the Family Crests of Steytlerville families and encompassing crests from all communities. Those families without traditional crests were encouraged to design their own to identify their unique family clans.  Steytlerville is the only town in South Africa to document and publicly pay homage to family names.

More information on the history of the family crest can be found at the Tourism Office.
