Explore the rich history of a small Karoo community and the majestic landscape around it
Why was it possible to establish a farm where the village lies today? How could the community survive so isolated and in such a harsh landscape? Who was brave enough to build a road across the Swartberg mountain?
You do not have to be a historian to enjoy the many stories that tell our history! Apart from being enlightened about how early settlers made – and enjoyed – a life, you may even find out what a set of false teeth and a flying doctor have in common.
Albert’s MillAlbert’s Mill
At Albert’s Mill flour was milled for more than 100 years…
Drive out along Christina de Wit Street towards the mountains and you will see the Mill on your left hand side, opposite the former Miller’s Restaurant. The restored wheel and over-shoot launder can be seen.
More information on the Mill at the Fransie Pienaar Museum.
