The town was named after Christoffel Fourie as it was his farm, Groenfontein, on which the town was built. During the Anglo Boer War it was the last official seat of the fugitive government of the Orange Free State and later became the stronghold of the armed forces in the Orange Free State. It almost became no more as it was close to being destroyed owing to the battles that took place here.
