Schoemansdal (Dutch: Schoeman's dale; at first Oude Dorp and Zoutpansbergdorp) was a settlement situated 16 km west of Louis Trichardt (Makhado), which had its origins during the Great Trek. It existed from 1848 to 1867, and functioned as the capital of an autonomous region until the S.A.R. Volksraad was established, when the outpost came under the supervision and regulations of the central government. The settlement was evacuated after only thirty years when attacked by Venda militants. The government rendered indecisive support and the town as torched by Katze-Katze on the night of 15 July 1867.

  • Schoemansdal, gesticht als Zoutpansbergdorp was de hoofdstad van de Boerenrepubliek Zoutpansberg. De nederzetting lag in de tegenwoordige provincie Limpopo, Zuid-Afrika, 16 kilometer ten westen van Louis Trichardt. De stad was bewoond van 1848 tot 1867 en is sindsdien verlaten. (nl)
  • Скумансдал, африк. Schoemansdal, букв. «долина Схумана» — бывший городок в 16 км от современного г. Луис-Тричард, возникший во времена Великого трека, однако через 30 лет после основания заброшенный из-за невозможности обороняться от частых нападений племён венда. После того, как Трансвааль восстановил контроль над местностью, было решено не восстанавливать Скумансдал, а основать новый посёлок близ Махадо. Таким образом, Скумансдал — единственное из поселений буров, которое так и не превратилось в современный город. (ru)

After the S.A.R. reestablished control over the area in 1898, the former settlement was ignored and a new one started, at the present Louis Trichardt. Consequently Schoemansdal was the only Voortrekker settlement not to evolve into a modern town. The archaeological site with traces of the former settlement is currently state property and access is controlled. It is situated on the north bank of the Dorps River at 552 m.a.s.l., near present-day Hamantsha and Tshiozwi townships and the Schoemansdal railway siding. (en)
