The city was founded in 1890 by the Pioneer Column, a small military force in the service of the British South Africa Company, and named Fort Salisbury after the British Prime Minister Lord Salisbury (Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury). Company administrators (Company rule in Rhodesia) demarcated the city and ran it until Southern Rhodesia achieved responsible government in 1923. Salisbury was thereafter the seat of the Southern Rhodesian (later Rhodesian) government and, between 1953 and 1963, the capital of the Central African Federation (Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland). It retained the name Salisbury until 1982, when it was renamed Harare on the second anniversary of Zimbabwean independence.
