Carnarvon Museum - Corbelled House

The corbelled house outside the museum is an excellent example of the many corbelled houses that can be found on farms in the district of Carnarvon. This specific corbelled house was removed from the farm Biesiespputs near Carnarvon on the road to Loxton. A local man of all trades, Roy Riley removed it section by section and rebuilt it on its present site. 

Mr Riley also rebuilt the English fort on Koe√ękop on the exact spot where it stood during the Anglo-Boer war. As a kid he used to play in the ruins of the old fort and never knew that he would one day be asked to rebuild it.
