Vereeniging at a glance
Leapfrog offers a wide range of Vereeniging property options that offer the best of both worlds, as the laidback atmosphere of country living is intertwined with city living. Vereeniging is situated in southern Gauteng as part of the Vaal Triangle, neighbouring Vanderbijlpark, Sasolburg and the Meyerton property region.
Developed on the banks of the Vaal River, Vereeniging was founded in 1892, and most of its earlier growth was due to the nearby coal mines where the first coal was discovered in 1878 on a farm called Leeuwkuil. This is also where the Treaty of Vereeniging was negotiated, which ended the Second Boer War in 1902. Many local historical artefacts are displayed in the Teknorama Museum in Duncanville, and contribute to historical importance of this area.
Vereeniging is a major industrial centre in South Africa and its alpha products are iron, steel, pipes, bricks, tiles and processed limes. Several coal mines are also situated in and around Vereeniging, with reserves estimated at four billion tons. The town offers excellent healthcare and educational institutions and the majority of these services are located within the central business district (CBD). Recreation and relaxation close to the Vaal River is a key benefit of owning property in Vereeniging. The Vaal Meander offers peace and tranquillity to those wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of city living, and surrounding heritage sites create opportunities for experiencing the unique arts and crafts that the Vaal offers.
