Eye of the Schoonspruit River
"This is one of many river eyes in the area. It is 6 km from Ventersdorp on the road to Koster. The town depends on its constant water supply for human consumption and the water level stays constant, even during dry seasons. It was also from here that the first mineral water was bottled in South Africa, under the label "Schoonspruit"."
"The mill is located in Roscher Street (off N14 on R30 just south of town). It was built on the Schoonspruit River, on a farm the government granted to Mrs de Beer after the death of her first husband. Her next husband, a Welshman named Mr Richard Carew Wilson, built the mill in 1866. It still works today, although it has been electrified and the wheel has long since gone."
Rietspruit Dam Resort
"Rietspruit is an angler's paradise, located 8 km from town on the road to Klerksdorp. A variety of water sports can be enjoyed at this resort."
"Klerkskraal is a highly-rated fishing spot, home to bass, carp, kurper, muddies and barbel. For those not in the angling mood, it makes for a beautiful picnic spot. It is 22 km from Ventersdorp on the road to Krugersdorp."
Anglo Boer South African War Memorial
"This memorial can be found near the Voortrekker Hall, next to the fire and ambulance services. It was erected in memory of Boer soldiers who died during skirmishes, and women and children who died in concentration camps."
"The fort is on the farm Elandskuil, 4 km out of town on the road to Klerksdorp. It is on the left side of the road, at the turn-off to the Rietspruit Dam."
Grave with Eternal Flowers
"In the town cemetery is the grave of an Irish soldier, G. Shaw, who fought on the side of the Boers during the South African War. He was court-marshalled by the British authorities and executed by firing squad. Use the entry gate to the left of the old cemetery. The lonely grave is in the shade of a huge tree, next to the fence on the left."
