Benmore Gardens was established on the portion of a farm known as Sandfontein, and then later the very famous farm, Benmore, owned by Montagu Simpson in 1928. The farm was located at the intersection of West Street, Benmore Street and Grayston Drive.
The suburb was named after the Benmore Ayrshire Herd of cattle which according to history has won numerous awards at various shows including the famous Rand Easter Show.
Today Benmore is of course an affluent suburb of Johannesburg with a myriad of architectural styles, apartment building, schools, malls and a commercial hub.
The fertile farm soil was also put to good use when one looks at the dramatic landscaped gardens in the suburb with its tree lined residential streets.
