Hartford's beauty discovered by the Moor family some 130 years ago, when the land was granted to them by Queen Victoria in the mid 1870s. This property, which was home to the family of Sir Frederick Moor, the last prime minister of the Colony of Natal, is now part of the greater Summerhill estate, the former domain of Colonel Richards, who served as Sir Frederick's deputy and then as a senator in the first government of the Union of South Africa. The families’ endeavours left their mark on what the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal represents today.

"We are keenly aware that we are custodians of one of Africa's most treasured legacies," says Hartford House's founder Cheryl Goss; the Gosses being the most recent of the three families to have lived at Hartford. "In the process of preserving it, we will leave our own signatures behind for those who follow."
