Modderfontein

Modderfontein in eastern Johannesburg was founded in 1894 as the site of a dynamite factory. A small village for workers grew around the factory and much of the land surrounding it was left unoccupied to form a buffer around any potentially dangerous explosions. All this resulted in what today is a quiet, green suburb, close to the city but blessed with a large parkland and a number of heritage buildings
