The Dutch Reformed Church, at Caledon, is a beautiful building of architectural pretensions which would not be unworthy of a large European town. It was erected a cost of £7,000 and seats 800 people. The town was called after Lord Caledon, and is an important centre for the wool, grain, ostrich feathers, wine, etc., produced in the district.
