    Cromwell was born in the 1880s, during the gold rush and was then abandoned. In 1990, a power station was built, and the lake Dunstan level increased: Cromwell Old Town was intentionally flooded, and its buildings were dismantled and then rebuilt in the actual location. Old town is now an open-air museum of the original arts and crafts of the village, it feels like walking in the past.

    The old town center, also known as the "mall" was relocated to higher ground after the construction of the Clyde Dam.

    It is a functional area of town, with shops and a couple cafe's, but it is also a free open-air museum piece.

    There are a couple small streets to walk around, with some information signs by some of the buildings. There are the stables, the storeroom, the Lowburn Cottage, the dairy, etc. You can peek through some windows or actually enter them if you visit during business hours.

    Jones Fruit Stall sells both fresh and dried fruits and they even offer samples, and you can get pretty full just by munching the samples.

    Albeit somewhat pricy, the fruit looks and tastes much better than in any grocery store. Highly recommened.
