Custodians of the Hall throughout history

Community of the Resurrection and the Grahamstown Training College

In 1894 the Sisters of the Community of the Resurrection founded the Grahamstown Training College, an institution which played a valuable part in the development of education in southern Africa, so much so that it was considered a "national loss" when it was forced to close down in 1974.
