The following report covers six former American Board Misison Stations in the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal. The mission stations are Adams, Amahlongwa, Imfume, Ifafa, Umthwalume and Umzumbe. Apart from our diverse intellectual interests in issues of culture, development, history, politics and (cultural and literary) tourism this project had other stakeholders involved. Such stakeholders ranged from national government agencies such as the National Heritage Council which funded the first phase of the research to local structures in the mission stations such as glebe committees. So, because of the varied and contesting interests in the outcome of this work we are mindful of the fact that the outcome might not please everyone.
