A quick visit to Skanskraal
” Moshoeshoe, whose injured son had been nursed back to health by the Venter family, suggested that Venter build a laager in which to keep his family and belongings safe. He was prepared to help and commissioned two hundred of his followers to assist. Stone by stone the structure was built and was given the name Skanskraal.
In 1834 several Voortrekkers had died of measles and been buried on the banks of the Perdespruit. Most of these were members of the Venter family. Since the graves were frequently flooded, in 1983 they were reburied at Skanskraal. (South-west of Voortrekker Street). ”
