Take a look into how Welkom got started.

A settlement was laid out on a farm named “Welkom” (which is the Afrikaans and Dutch word for “welcome“) after gold was discovered in the region, and it was officially proclaimed a town in 1948. The town became a municipality in 1961. The city now falls in the Matjhabeng Municipality, part of the Lejweleputswa District with a population of over 650 000 people. Welkom was officially declared a city on 14 February 1968.

Much of the history of Welkom is centred around the discovery of gold in the northwestern Free State. It was proclaimed a town in 1948, nine years after a major gold discovery was made in Odendaalsrus, just north of Welkom
