Fodor's Review

The old Dutch Reformed Church (also known as the Strooidakkerk) is a thatch (strooidak) building dating from 1805. The cemetery contains the tombstones of the Malherbe family, who were instrumental in the campaign to gain official recognition for Afrikaans. The church is still active, and you can peek inside.
