The graves of Voortrekkers Jan Christoffel and Maria Magdalena Esterhuysen and their descendants are to be found here. Jan and Maria settled on their farm Zandfontein in 1836 and were the first white family to settle in this area. Jan's mother, Judith, was the sister of Voortrekker leader Andries Pretorius. Two of Jan's brothers were killed with Piet Retief when they accompanied him on his historic visit to Dingane in 1838.
