The history of Oakdene Guest House, Oudtshoorn
In 1847 the small Klein Karoo town known as ‘Veldskoen’ was renamed Oudtshoorn.
Six years later, Oakdene was built on the main road by Mr. J.H. Mulder, who later also built Oudtshoorn’s magnificent sandstone Moederkerk and the Pastorie. In Oakdene, Mulder’s style blended typical Cape vernacular with elements of traditional Victorian and Klein Karoo architecture.
