Newlands is one of Cape Town’s most historically rich areas. It was originally established as a fruit and vegetable growing settlement providing provisions to the Dutch East India Company ships in the early 1700s.

Newlands has a unique character and special place in the history of the Cape. Preserving historical events, people and places associated with Newlands & Westerford area is one of the tasks of the NRA.

The Newlands Residents’ Association would like to establish a collection of historical articles. Any contributions and comments would be most welcome and can be sent to admin@newlandsresidents.org.za.
