On the outskirts of Uitenhage is Cuyler Manor; a Historical giant in Nelson Mandela Bay gently tucked away between the Swartkops River and the old road to Port Elizabeth (R367) where a 200-year old Cape Dutch house reflects a bygone era. The Homestead, built in a predominantly Cape-Dutch style, in 1814.  Was the homestead of Jacob Glen Cuyler, Uitenhage founder and district magistrate. In 1966 the municipality bought the house from the Cuyler family, restored it and to this day it still acts as a Museum where the yesteryear stories and way of living lives on.

It was declared a National Monument under old NMC legislation on 14 March 1980.
