In 1912 Frederich Haschke bought the farm Mickberg (15 000 hectares) for £2 500. It was then known as the waterless farm. He immediately started building a house for Martha Feiber, his wife to be. Building material for the house was imported from Germany to Lüderitz Bay, from where it was railed to Klein-Karas station. A steel tyred wagon was used to transport the material from Klein-Karas station to the farm. Water needed for building the house was transported from the neighbouring farm, Grabwasser. There is no information on how long it took to complete the house, but after all the trouble of building the house for his bride, to his greatest disappointment, he still could not find any water on the farm. When the First World War broke out, troops from the Union of South Africa invaded this German colony. In April 1915 the young couple, who were persued by troops, fled to the north of the colony with some of their possessions and live stock. The White House was left behind, furniture and all. Their flight was cut short when they were arrested on the 17th of April and all their possessions were confiscated. Frederich was sent to a prisoners-of-war camp at Kimberley and Martha was kept prisoner at Gibeon. All the adversity was too much for Frederich. He was declared temporarily insane and sent to Valkenburg, a mental hospital in Cape Town. In 1918 he was sent back to Germany, where he was re-united with his wife.

What a pleasant experience! For a family of 5 we really enjoyed our stay at the White House! We had time to relax while the children were enjoying the swimming pool. The food baskets available is amazing and so worth it after a long drive. We wish the White House was closer to home so that we could visit it at least twice a year!

Superb. 5 out of 5
