Located in Zimbabwe :: Manicaland  :: Mutare
Category: Places :: Village

The town of Mutare was originally founded in 1891 but when a proposed railway line from Beira could not be constructed through the site it was decided to move the settlement to a different location situated on the railway line. When Cecil Rhodes was asked what he intended to do with the old site, he said, “We will turn it into a Mission.” He met Bishop Joseph Crane Hartzell and invited the bishop to speak at the official opening of the railway at Bulawayo. Cecil Rhodes urged him to visit the original site of the settlement with the thought of establishing mission work there. Bishop Hartzell arrived by horse on December 10, 1897. (Source:
