Abstract

Admiralty House is the oldest and unquestionably the most interesting building in Simonstown. It was originally the home of Antoni Visser, a former Dutch soldier whose willingness to serve as the Dutch East India Company's unofficial representative in Simon's Bay probably encouraged him to build the house. A double-storeyed house approximately on the site of the present Admiralty House is shown on a map dated circa 1740.
