Chancellor House before renovations

Chancellor House is a building situated at 25 Fox Street, Ferreirasdorp, Johannesburg, that once housed the law firm of Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo. It is a national heritage site.

The building was due to be bought by the Johannesburg Heritage Trust in 2004 [1] and developed into a tourist destination, with R300 000 earmarked for the construction of a visitor center.[2]

As of 2008, however, no purchase had been consummated and the building reportedly continued to fall into ruin.[3]

Full restoration of the building was completed in May, 2011.
