The country town of Heidelberg, situated only 57 km from Johannesburg International Airport was established by Heinrich Ueckermann when he bought a part of the farm Langlaagte and started a general dealer in 1861. The actual development of the town started in 1865 and he named the town after his alma mater in Germany. The town survived the First and Second Wars of Independence and today there are still many buildings dating back to the period between 1890 to 1910 that have been preserved. Heidelberg served as capital of the ZAR Republic from 1880 to 1883 and today an obelisk with busts of the Triumvirate Paul Kruger, PJ Joubert and MW Pretorius can still be seen in front of the sandstone Town Hall, erected in 1939. In 1885 the Witwatersrand gold reef was discovered in the Heidelberg district and later the Mining Commissioner established offices in town.
