The strongest man in the area, Benjamin Myburgh, farmed here. He ploughed his lands with a heavy hand plough.  While ploughing, a visitor asked him the direction to a farm. He lifted the plough with his one hand and pointed it in the direction of the farm. The legend was told far and wide and the area became known as Benjamins Hoogte.
