A medicinal spring surfaces close to the town of Heilbron, meaning "fountain of blessing", founded in 1890.

The region produces milk, maize, sorghum, sunflower seeds and wheat.

At Uniefees Dam is a boating, swimming and fishing recreational area with camping and caravanning sites.

For one week in May 1900, Heilbron was the capital of the Orange Free State, when President Marthinus Steyn had his headquarters in the town.
