Wilhelm Pagel was a Circus Master and legendary strong-man. He landed in Durban in 1905 and gave his first performance in Pietermaritzburg. He was widely acclaimed for his strong-man feats and Pagel Circus was formed. It became a familiar institution throughout South Africa for more than forty years. Pagel also won fame as a trainer of lions and other large animals. His last performance was in Wakkerstroom on his 70th birthday.

Frank Wilke, the then owner of the house in Stockenstroom Street, was the owner of the largest, private zoo located just outside Aberdeen. He was an ardent admirer of Pagel. After Pagel’s death, Wilke arranged with his widow to acquire the marble name plaques that now grace the guest house in Aberdeen. He also bought the Pagel Circus and moved it to Aberdeen.

Today, Pagel house is owned and managed by South African-born Lynette Dugmore. Lyn had been working as a nursing sister in Switzerland for 24 years before responding to an inner call to “come home”. She moved all the way from St. Gallen after purchasing Pagel House.
