    Its history began in the year 1874. The town had its origin from a strong fountain that sprout on a hill. It was first part of the farm Kameeldoorns. Bushmen, settlers and wild animals came to drink from the fountain. Die farm Bultfontein was first owned by Andrew Murray, before it became a town. The earliest township was called Marantha, and because of apartheid it was moved to a distant location and was called Phahameng.

Several farmers in the district breed pedigree cattle; Herefords, Limousins and Fries/Holsteins. Other interesting farming activities include the cultivation of cut flowers on the farm Rondepan, 10 km east of the town on the Theunissen Road.
