Ohrigstad Accommodation

Ohrigstad is a small town to the north of Lydenburg. The remains of a Voortrekker cemetery and an old fort may still be seen. The town was established as a Voortrekker settlement under the leadership of Andries Hendrik Potgieter with the help of a Dutch merchant Gregorius Ohrig. The settlers arrived in 1845 and were soon afterwards decimated by malaria and forced to abandon the area. Settlers only returned once the disease was under control. On the 14 May 1873, the area was proclaimed as a public gold field after the discovery of gold in the Selati River.
