Erected in 1929 by the Methodist Church to commemorate the English Missionary Edward Boyer Cook (1806-1843), the founder of Warmbad, former Nisbett\'s Bath, the first Wesleyan Mission Station in Great Namaqualand. He arrived in 1834 and settled in the mission station that had been started by William Threllfall who has been murdered soon after his arrival in 1825. Cook baptised 437 people within 9 years. Although he died at the Orange River on his way back from Cape Town, he was buried in Warmbad.
