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.

Drakensberg Boys Choir
Please support this lovely concert. Holy Family College is a staunch ally of the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation. Our Reseearch Centre is housed there; many of our school tours take place there in the old classroom high up in the attics and of course it is our base each September for Heritage Weekend. The Drakensberg Boys Choir is one of the country’s great treasures and it would be a shame tp miss this opportunity to hear them.
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.
