Geography and history
Odendaalsrus is a small town situated in the Lejweleputswa region of the Free State Province, South Africa. This area originated from a collection of farms and a central church. In 1946 gold was struck and Odendaalsrus has since thrived on this infrastructure. The town was established on a farm named Geduld in 1912. About 10 km from Odendaalsrus the Kutlwanong location was set up to accommodate black people during the apartheid era. Water was sold to the people from a privately owned well, because the village suffered from perpetual water shortage.
