The History of Edenvale
was named after John Eden, the part owner of the original farm
called Rietfontein. It came into being as a town after the Anglo
Boer war, when stands that had been demarcated and surveyed were
sold to the Cornish miners employed at Rietfontein mine. The
population increased when the nearby farms of Modderfontein and
Klipfontein were sold to build a dynamite factory and workers for
this factory were brought in from Austria, Germany and Italy.
