Cromwell was born in the 1880s, during the gold rush and was then abandoned. In 1990, a power station was built, and the lake Dunstan level increased: Cromwell Old Town was intentionally flooded, and its buildings were dismantled and then rebuilt in the actual location. Old town is now an open-air museum of the original arts and crafts of the village, it feels like walking in the past.
