Alanglade was built in 1915 by the Transvaal Gold Mining Estates Ltd to serve as the official general mine manager’s residence at Pilgrim’s Rest. It is situated a few kilometres to the north of the historic village on the Mpumalanga Escarpment. The residence is surrounded by mountains and shady forests that to this day provide an atmosphere of quiet opulence and serenity. It was occupied by several general mine managers until 1972, when mining activity at Pilgrim’s Rest was suspended.
