Barberton Historical Buildings - Gold Exchange

The De Kaap Stock Exchange was the second stock exchange built in Barberton. It was built in 1887, but its existence was short-lived. In 1899 the building was bought by Sammy Marks, and in 1910 it was taken over by the Barberton Municipality, to house the Carnegie Library and the first museum. When the condition of the building deteriorated to such an extent that it had to be demolished, only the Facade could be preserved. Location: Pilgrim Street.
