Do you Know

The small town is often called Harties by the locals. The dam was built on Hartbeespoort Farm. The Afrikaans farmers who lived there in the 1830’s, hunted hartebeests, a type of antelope, cornering them in the valley. Originally the dam was the dream of General Schoeman, a Boer General who owned Hartbeespoort Farm in the 1890’s. The dam was built to irrigate the farms in the area which then became valuable and fertile. The main crops grown on farms around the dam are flowers, fruit and tobacco.
