Seven Fountains was originally a resting place for ox-wagons in the 18th century and came to be known as Zuurplaats by early Dutch settlers to the area.
In 1820, abandoned loan-farms were re-allocated to newly arrived British Settlers. They erected the first Methodist church there in 1834 and it is still in use today even though a newer and larger church was built in 1929.
Today the village of Seven Fountains comprises shops, a clinic, sports club and police station which serve the local, mainly farming, population.
