Interestingly, Andries Francois du Toit was the original owner of the land on which the Union Buildings were built. In addition, he was Pretoria’s first magistrate and was responsible for the layout of the city. During this time he sold his land, called Arcadia, to Stephanus Jacobus Meintjies after whom the hill in Arcadia is named. The Union Buildings form the official seat of the South African government and also house the offices of the President of South Africa. These magnificent buildings sit on Meintjies Kop and overlook Pretoria.
