Marydale

 

Established in 1903 by the Dutch Reformed Church, Marydale was named after the wife of Mr GP Snyman, owner of the farm Kalkput on which the town was laid out.

On the northwest side of Marydale is a rich underground water source and the main means of water supply is by borehole and wind pumps. The town depends mainly on sheep farming to sustain its self.

As with a large part of the SiyaThemba Municipal area the area of Marydale close to the Orange River sustain irrigation farming including the production and processing of cotton.
