The Mission House
In 1857, the Basel Mission bought 12,600 square metres of land outside the city walls, on which the grounds of the Basel Mission with several buildings were built in the following years. The mission house was inaugurated in 1860. Missionaries were trained here until 1960. Training lasted 6 years. In addition to theological training, the missionary students learned languages, geography, ethnology, history, singing and music. They received basic medical training, photographic training and also learned a practical trade.
