History and Activities for Hartswater Cotton Fields

The town was laid out in 1948 and was established to

serve the northern part of the Harts valley. This area,

originally a wilderness of natural shrub and trees, was

plagued with aridity and had no hope of future agricultural development until the irrigation scheme was introduced.
