Geocache Description:


Weltevreden Park Cemetery or Historical Graveyard. According to the commemorative stones found in English and Afrikaans at the coordinates, this place represents the earliest known written record of the history of Roodepoort. It is the graveyard of the inhabitants of the farm Weltevreden. We would estimate that this graveyard has been around since about 1891, according to the details on the information stones on the outside of the cemetery. If you want to see one of the oldest buildings in Johannesburg and one of the original farmhouses of the farm Weltevreden, head over to the corner of JG Strijdom and Tennis Roads, across from the vet, there is a blue heritage plaque describing the house. Logging Tasks: In order to log this cache you need to send a private message to the cache owner either via the app or email with the following information: Take a look through the green locked entrance gate into the graveyard. The gravestone closest to the gate has the details of a man on it. (1) Send the details of the full name of the man, his date of birth and the date of his passing.(2)Send a date stamped photo of you/your team either at the sign of the cemetery or of your/your teams feet at one of the information stones. Your date stamped photos can be included in your logging of the cache online but do not include any of the information of the gravestone in your online logging of the cache. Failure to send the above required information to the cache owner and include a date stamped photo of you/your team at the site will result in your log been deleted. THERE IS NO NEED TO GO INTO THE CEMETERY AT ALL.
