Our City's built heritage resources are precious, non-renewable, finite and irreplaceable. Through its core activities of Tours, Research, Education, Conservation and Activism, the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation aims to protect our rich and varied heritage of Johannesburg and its associated social history, for the use and enjoyment of both current and future generations.

The Johannesburg Heritage Foundation is delighted to publish the start of the list of material which we carry in our archives. This is thanks to the grant received from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund which enabled the establishment of the programme. It is a work in progress and will be added to as more material is indexed and scanned. We currently have around 16,000 documents scanned and the list continues to grow.
People interested in obtaining further information from our archives are welcome to contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org. While members have free access to the material, there is a fee for non-members and organisations.

NEWS! - JOBURG’S 130th BIRTHDAY
On Joburg’s 130th birthday Executive Mayor Herman Mashaba and MMC Nonhlanhla Sifumba visited Museum Africa and were photographed next to the original Mayoral Chair. The Mayor dared not sit in it as the seat has collapsed. Vice Chair Kathy Munro suggested it offered a fine project for the Foundation – repairing the mayoral seat.
Thanks to the co-operation of the Friends of the James Hall Transport Museum the birthday celebrations proved a very successful event for the JHF.
