Greytown Museum & drought

Greytown Museum - Durban Street - Building elevations (6) Greytown - Harding Street - King Edward VII Park Sportsfield -  Soccer field (1)Last weeks revisit to Greytown was disturbing from the point of view of the effects of the current drought. I have never witnessed the town looking so dry at this time of the year. As of my visit, the Municipality had reduced water availability from 4am until 8am.

On a positive note the local Umvoti Greytown History Museum (a national monument) is well worth a visit with exhibits on the Umvoti Mounted Rifles, Boer War, Bambatha Rebellion, cultural displays and equipment amongst many  other interesting displays.

The Museum itself is housed in the old Magistrates Residency which was built by Dr Birtwell c1850.
