Barberton Heritage Walk

The Barberton Heritage Walk is a well-posted self-guided tour around the downtown area, covering monuments and historical houses including the 1904 prefabricated iron Belhaven House (Lee St, tours on the hour 10am-3pm Mon-Fri, R10). With the purchase of the Belhaven House ticket you can also go into the 1886 Stopforth House (Bowness St, tours on the hour 10am-3pm Mon- Fri, R10), and the wood and iron Fernlea House (Lee St, open 8:30am-1pm and 1:30-4pm Mon-Fri). Running through the west side of town is an abandoned aerial cable way that was built in 1938 and carried cocopans of asbestos from Swaziland to Barberton and coal in the other direction.
