A monument dedicated to showcasing the history of the hard lives led by pioneer settlers in the area, between 1840 and 1900, you will find the Great Fish River Museum located behind the town hall in Cradock. The museum is housed in the second Dutch Reformed Church Parsonage, built in 1849 and finally declared as a national monument in the year 1971.

The Great Fish River Museum exhibits a fairly comprehensive assortment of historical items which include furniture of the time, ceramics and a couple of old photographs. On display you will a coach house, a typical ox wagon and a four-horse cart.

A Cape cart and a hearse dating back to the early settlers completes the picture while the garden is a fine example of a parsonage garden dating back some 100 years, preserving those moments in history. Visitors are invited to step back in time and experience the simple yet harsh lives of our pioneering forefathers.
