Brief History

The legacy of the past directly links the Johann Rissik IPA House situated in Pretoria to the history of two neighbouring cities in the Gauteng Province of South Africa, namely Pretoria itself and Johannesburg – The Johann Rissik House was in 1924 built for Mr Johannes Rissik, the person after which Johannesburg was named. The facility has been in operation as an IPA House since 1988.
