A Rich, Interesting History

In 2007 a resident in Edward Street dug up his garden for paving and found a coin the size of a 5c piece amongst the rubble. After cleaning, it turned out to be a very unusual German 5 Heller (Wilhelm II – Tabora Emergency Coin) struck in brass.

Browse these and many more interesting bits of history, and learn more about our beautiful suburb!

Frequently Asked Questions

For communities who wish to enjoy municipal services of a higher standard, a SRA provides the local community with the option of paying for this higher standard, which should be affordable and sustainable.

In short, the RHRA (Richmond Hill Residents Association) the RHSCF (Richmond Hill Sector Crime Forum) were the informal versions of the SRA. The RHRA and the RHSCF were operating from donations of the community, whereas the SRA is operated from rates collected.

The Sector Crime Forum remains as subsidiary of the SRA, a link between SRA and Humewood Community Policing Forum and also the South African Police Service (SAPS).

Welcome to the Richmond Hill SRA webpage. This Richmond Hill (to distinguish from others around the world), is mainly a residential suburb and is part of the CBD of Port Elizabeth located in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa.

Although it also features a number of businesses, the suburb is second to the oldest residential area in South Africa. It is also the largest historical residential area in South Africa and as such lodges roughly 232 hectares in Nelson Mandela Bay Metro.

Old suburbs are subjected to decay and neglect but the property owners of Richmond Hill decided that these adverse influences and perceptions can be stopped by becoming involved in the preservation and improvement of our valuable heritage.

Old as it may be, do not discount our funky and trendy world-renowned restaurants in Stanley Street! A place to meet your friends and view the famous, but also a place to sit back and relax on the pavements with your favourite dish or cuppa!

On these pages you will find all the information on how the process of improvement and preservation developed. You will find how the various private initiatives were and still are executed to protect our amazingly vibrant and trendy suburb! In addition, if your are a resident or property owner, you will find all the info on how to get involved in this dynamic process!

* The Richmond Hill Special Rates Area is a Non Profit Company and because it is a business, all content here and on related social media pages are conducted in English, the business language of South Africa.
