If you’re in Grahamstown and head towards Rhodes University you will find a huge square structure at the top of the hill which is the 1820 Settlers National Monument.

The original monument was opened in 1974, but it burnt down in 1994 and was then rebuilt. Although it was built with some improvements for example the Fountain Court Statue, it did remain similar to the original structure.

The memorial was built to commemorate the English settlers who arrived on our continent so many years ago and as a venue that would contribute to the surrounding community. The Fountain Court Statue is built out of yellowwood and the scaffolding design is representative of the British flag.

The monument is also a key player in the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, it is used every year as the anchor of the event and is one of the largest venues used.
