Description

The historic farm Liliesleaf, in the heart of residential Rivonia, was a quiet 28-acre farm on the outskirts of Johannesburg and the secret headquarters of the African National Congress (ANC). On the morning of 11 July 1963 the farm was brought to the world’s attention when police swooped on the top leadership of the ANC, silencing black resistance to apartheid for many years to come. In December 2001 the Liliesleaf Trust was formed, with the aim of restoring the house and the outbuildings where the Rivonia trialists, lived to their original state, together with a hotel and conference centre. GVK-Siya Zama restored the original manor house and outbuildings to its original state. Workers used photographic reference to complete this historically significant project.
