Pilgrim’s Rest
Pilgrims Rest is a small town which attracted a rush of prospectors in 1873, soon after the Mac Mac diggings.Determination eventually gave way to deeper ore mining. Mining was closed down in 1971 and the village was sold to the government as a national museum. The town’s original architecture remains largely unchanged since then. Pilgrims Rest was the location of an emergency mint during the Second Boer War. This mint struck the famous and extremely rare Veld Pond.
