“From Southern Africa will spring the next great civilization on this planet...”
—L. Ron Hubbard, in an address to Johannesburg Scientologists

Linksfield Ridge House
Johannesburg, South Africa

Mr. Hubbard’s study, including the reference books, zebra rug, African artifacts, and motion picture camera he used in South Africa.

In late 1960, L. Ron Hubbard traveled from his home at Saint Hill Manor for an extended stay in Johannesburg, South Africa. Among other milestones from his South African sojourn: He authored a “one man, one vote” constitution for apartheid-shackled South Africa. He likewise presented a bill of rights and penal code for equality and justice.

Also by way of milestone statements from atop Linksfield Ridge, he developed introductory routes into Scientology organizations and established new types of organizations—Centers and City Offices—to accommodate fledgling Scientology groups.

The fully restored residence houses displays that tell of L. Ron Hubbard’s visit to South African prisons and the criminal reform programs he initiated, his lectures to South African Scientologists and his pioneering work in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).

The living room—fully restored with its original exotic wood floors and furnishings—served for meetings on plans and programs in South Africa.

Officials and dignitaries also meet here to plan educational programs for the citizens of South Africa utilizing L. Ron Hubbard’s social betterment technologies.

Likewise, Scientologists today walk into the same living room where Mr. Hubbard entertained officials and dignitaries. One may also see the study where he authored his constitution on behalf of all South Africans and the Scientology texts on behalf of all humankind.
