    Attachment 6Location

    The key town of Hoopstad is situated on the R700 Highway between Bloemfontein and the North West Province. The town is located near the Bloemhof Dam which is situated on the Vaal River.

    History

    The town of Hoopstad was initially founded in 1876 and named Hauptstad after Mr. Haupt, a surveyor. The translation of Haupstad into Afrikaans means Capital, which it clearly wasn’t and the town was therefore renamed Hoopstad. The town, who name means “Hope City” in Afrikaans, was established on the one side of the large farm Kameeldoorns, with Bultfontein on the other side of the farm.
