- Free State
Founded in 1889 on the farm 'Stompkop' and named after Frederick Reitz who was President of the then Orange Free State, the town of Reitz, in the 'maize triangle' of the northern Free State, is the centre for one of the largest co-operative agricultural societies in South Africa.
Reitz was orignally named Amsterdam but was later renamed after President Reitz.
It is a peaceful small town with unsurpassed hospitality and the perfect escape for a tranquil country retreat.
A maize elevator dominates the skyline and Reitz is a prosperous example of a 'corn town'.
