Springs is a town located 50km east of Johannesburg and 72km southeast of Pretoria in the Gauteng province and it falls under the Ekurhuleni municipality. Its initial formation stems from intriguing circumstances. The city itself, as it is known today, was only established in 1904. However, it was in 1840 when farmers moved to the area and started claiming land for themselves to establish their own farms. These farms were very large and spanned across a vast territory, however, the exact measurements of these farms were not recorded when they were initially set up. When the accurate borders of the farms were documented, it turned out that there were a lot of ‘dead zones’ between farms that belonged to no one. These areas later became state-owned land.
The city of Springs was once classified as one of the no-man’s-land pieces of land that none of the farmers owned. It was located between three farms in Witwatersrand; namely Geduld, De Rietfontein and Brakpan. The name of the land was granted by the land surveyor, James Brooks, who supposedly named the land based on the number of fountains found there. Another story, however, claims that Brooks wanted to name the land after himself. Unfortunately, Brooks is very similar to the Afrikaans word ‘broek’ that means trousers and Brooks feared the farmers would mock him.
The discovery of gold and coal is what increased the land value of Springs. In 1888, the first contract for a coal mine was signed. It started out as small-scale coal mining but grew, due to the high-quality of the coal, when the Great Eastern mine was established. Gold mining also resulted in huge rewards to the miners of the area and Springs is still one of South Africa’s leading gold mining centers.
Springs was established as the town known today in 1904. It is now home to monuments dedicated to important people who shaped the development of the city, such as Paul Kruger, and a war cemetery where numerous Coloured soldiers who fell during the Second World War are buried. Famous people who were born in Springs include Nobel laureate Nadine Gordimer, rock musician James Phillips, and Afrikaans singer Rina Hugo.
On a visit to Springs, tourists can enjoy paragliding adventures or stop in to shop at Carnival City. There are also golf courses such as the Benoni Lake Golf Club and the ERPM Golf Course which are worth a visit from gold enthusiasts.
