Historic Town of Carnarvon

From approximately the year 1795 large numbers of the Xhosa community began to migrate along the Orange River. This later lead to battles amongst the Xhosa, Boers, Koranna and Khoikhoi tribes. A mission was eventually established in 1847 by Reverend Christoph Alheit, who named it Schietfontein. He began working with the local tribes and founded both a school and a church. The creation of the mission also led to the founding of the town of Harmsfontein in 1860. Some of the buildings erected between the years of 1811 and 1815 can still be seen in this historic town, which was renamed to Carnarvon in 1874.
