Marble Hall

Marble was first discovered in the area in 1913 and in 1929 mining started in a big way when the Marble Lime Company was formed to work the site, in which no less than 15 varieties of marble are quarried. In 1936 a railway line was built to the town. Marble and lime are still mined here, but the region also has a busy citrus-farming and intensive cotton-growing industry. The Marble Hall/Groblersdal area is a popular agri-tourism destination because of the variety of its products, including seedless grapes, tobacco, vegetables and wheat produced here. Crocodile and ostrich-farming are some of the other activities of the area.
