DRC Vredenburg

Here's the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC, or NGK) in Vredenburg, just over 100km/60mi north of Cape Town. The Church was dedicated on the 10th October 1875 -- the town then being no more than a hamlet. The same year, the town was renamed Vredenburg (Peace Town) in place of Prosesfontein (Litigation Town). The spire was a fairly late addition to the building. You may click on the photo to enlarge to 270k.
