Nieuwoudtville Dutch Reformed Church

This Neo-Gothic church towers over Nieuwoudtville and dwarfs the town. The foundation stone was laid in 1906 just after the devastation of South Africa by the Boere War. The sandstone was mined at Nieuwoudtville and all other material was fetched by ox wagon. An epic task in those days. This church is one of few in South Africa that has not been crowded by urban sprawl. In days gone by the congregation with their ox wagons and tents encamped around the church.
