The Birth Of Jeppe
Established in 1886 by C.E.G. Julius Jeppe, who formed the Ford and Jeppe Estate Company with his son, who was also called Julius Jeppe, and L.P. Ford, Jeppestown was described as consisting of "421 buildings, two churches, a Masonic temple, St Mary's Collegiate for Girls and a library". The suburb had 5,647 residents by 1896, and the open space known as Julius Jeppe Oval was turned into a park about the same time that St Michael's School for Boys, which has since been renamed Jeppe High School for Boys, was founded.
Jeppestown is now home to as many as over 14 000 residents and has become more than just a history hub of Jozi.
