"For over three decades from 1928, the land surrounding this site was home to the famous Benmore Farm. The owner, businessman Montagu Simpson, imported Ayrshire cattle from Scotland to form the renowned Benmore Ayrshire Herd. 'Benmore's best' won awards throughout South Africa and were exported to eager buyers around the world.

The people and animals of Benmore Farm are commemorated in the street names of the area."
