First battle (Battle of Belmont) Anglo Boer War, started on Thomas's Farm. The homestead was erected in the 18th century, and was the headquarters of Lord Methuen (British General) now a Guest Farm! The main reason why Thomas's Farm was also the British camp and military hospital, were the open water holes with crystal clear water, fed by underground channels, sufficient for 10 000 soldiers and horses.
