The origin of the old cemetry is closely connected to the legend of the Robbers Grave.The grave is of an unknown man who was caught and convicted of tent robbing on the diggings (1873-1876), and subsequently banished. A few days later the thief was spotted on a hill, now known as Cemetry Hill.
He was shot and killed where he stood and buried where he fell. His grave lies north-south to brand him forever a thief. All other graves lie east-west.
A funny sign with this old rusty car.
Funny detail is that the word "rust" in Dutch means "rest" but the word "rust" in English would be "roest" in Dutch!
