Ox-wagon Trek Monument
This monument was erected in 1938 with the assistance of the Cultural Historical Society in conjunction with the Town Council. The symbolic ox-wagon trek through the Republic to Pretoria was intended to commemorate the Great Trek, which had taken place a century earlier from the Cape Colony to the north. The wagontracks evident in the cement in front of the Voortrekker School mark the trek of Charl Cilliers.
