HISTORY

South Africa's Tallest Sandstone Building














Gumtree, a quaint railway siding surrounded by a cluster of houses and situated 20 km from Ficksburg, where dirt roads still exist, has become a new focus in the Eastern Free State.
It is home to the highest sandstone building in the country — the mill which used to be the hub of this oncethriving district.

Sadly the mill is no longer in use and just the shell of the magnificent building remains. The ruin, with its agnificent architecture, is a photographer’s dream.
