British forces built a blockhouse in the settlement two years later at the onset of the Anglo-Boer War - that building is now a Monument and Museum within the grounds of the local Court House.

The blockhouse built by the British stands in the grounds of the Courthouse and is the only surviving blockhouse in KwaZulu-Natal. Between Bergville and the Royal Natal National Park is the Zulu handicraft center of Thandanani that sells a variety of traditional beadwork, woodwork and baskets.
