Heidelberg began as a trading station and was named after the store owner’s hometown in Germany. During the Second Boer War, the British built a concentration camp here to house the women and children.  A monument was erected to commemorate all the deaths.

During the mid seventies many young cadets got their compulsory military training here at the academy.
