Vredefort is a small farming town in the Free State province with cattle, peanuts, sorghum, sunflowers and maize being farmed. The town got its name after the peaceful conclusion of a threatened war between the Orange Free State and Transvaal.

The Vredefort Dome is the oldest and largest meteorite impact site in the world. It is South Africa's 7th World Heritage Site. The town was established in 1876 on a farm called Visgat, on the Vredefort crater.

It was this approximately 10-kilometre wide bolide that led to the preservation of the gold-bearing reefs of the Free State some 2.02 billion years ago. The British built a concentration camp here during the Second Boer War to house Boer women and children.
