Move to the Historic Town of Piketberg

I have just moved to the historic town of Piketberg and am living in one of the first homes built in the 1800’s.

“Piketberg is a lovely little town nestling at the bottom of the Piket mountain range which soars 1430 metres above the town. Piketberg was established in 1836 when Sir Benjamin D’Urban gave the ruling farm in the area to the Church council. This allowed the church to govern the town which grew up around it until 1901.

In every country town in SA you are likely to find a Dutch Reformed Church. It’s normally the largest building in the town and always has a church steeple. In Piketberg this tradition is no exception.”
