Geography and History

The town was founded in 1838, on the farm Buffelsfontein, which was owned by Gerrit van Wyk. Today the population of the village is about 700, of which a few direct descendants of Van Wyk can still be found. Throughout history, the inhabitants of the town were dependant on the farming of fruit, sheep, cattle and ostriches, enjoying the constant supply of water in winter and summer, thanks to the mountain spring known as "The Eye".

Once, during the years of the ostrich boom, it was the centre of education in the Little Karoo. The school, built in 1912, had at one time, well over 200 pupils, who came in from all the surrounding towns.
