Oliewenhuis, a neo-Dutch-style mansion, was designed by William Mollison, Head Architect of the Department of Public Works and his assistant, John Stockwing Cleland in 1935. This mansion, completed in 1941, served as residence for the Governor General of the Union of South Africa from 1942. After the establishment of the Republic of South Africa in 1961, Oliewenhuis became the official Bloemfontein residence for the State Presidents of South Africa. The residence was used approximately every four years for this purpose.
