Het Posthuys (“the post house”) in Muizenberg - Cape Town. Built in the 1670s, Het Posthuys is the oldest standing building on the False Bay coastline. The Anglo-American Corporation restored the building in the early 1980s and it was reopened as a museum. One of the original floor stones still has a series of boat-shaped grooves caused by an ochre-grinding stone, probably used by the San or Khoi inhabitants of the area.
