Dutch Reformed Church Museum

(NG Kerk Museum)

 

Money was borrowed to build the Dutch Reformed Church which was completed in 1913. In 1924 there was an outstanding amount of £8000.† In order to pay the debt, Gabriel and Johanna Nel erected and donated a small building, to be used as a Koffiehuis (coffee shop) on the church property.† Ladies from the congregation sold beverages and snacks at the Koffiehuis and soon the debt was paid.† At a later stage it was changed to a Museum.† Various interesting items were donated by the community and space became a problem. This was resolved in 2012 when new display cabinets were installed.†

The Museum contains items and photographs from the DR Church, the old Koffiehuis, Great Trek, Anglo-Boer War and First World War as well as† antique household items, clothing and various interesting odds and ends.†

Please contact Mrs. Jooste to open and guide you on a tour.† She tells the most interesting stories about the objects in the museum.
