Old School House




Fouriesburg Station was (conveniently) established 10 kms from the towm, on the Ficksburg to Bethlehem line. A small community grew up around the station and later the grain storage silos. Naturally a small school was established to cater for the community children. The school building has fallen into disrepair but the school masters house has been restored and made into a comfortable restaurant. The railway line is still active and there are hopes to see steam running on the line again one day.
