Main St. with family crests Visitors celebrating life Modern
Welcome to the Southern Karoo hamlet of Steytlerville, a town with a will and character
all of its own. We may be a small community, but we boast a determination to succeed
and excel in many of the facets that make out everyday life. But allow us to introduce
ourselves briefly to you in this website.
Yes, we are mainly a community dependent on farming, but there are some interesting
variations on the theme of eking out a living in a harsh, dry environment. In the
first census of 1904 more than 400 farmers were counted. However, because of many
socio-economic and ecological factors this number has dwindled to its present number
of between 60 and 70. Quality, not quantity, prevails!
