The Fox is a well known landmark.  But did you know that it was built on a piece of land called Gander Hill?  Or that Africa's most famous game hunter lived at Fox Corner?  Or that David Livingstone's daughter lived here?  And in the 1950's where in Fox Corner did an MP live ?  We hope you enjoy reading about these and the other things that created the Fox Corner of today.
