Luckhoff

This town was established on the farm Koffiekuil, in 1892, and named after the Dutch Reformed minister of Fauresmith, when the new congregation was later officially formed. It is situated on Road R48, 50 km south of Koffiefontein, in a primarily merino sheep farming district. Taubie Kushlick, the doyenne of South African theatre, was born here.
