History on a Pinhead

The town came into being shortly after the discovery of the Orange oilfield in 1913. In 1921, when a major well came in, the town applied for a post office. The post office opened the following year and being a boom town, the population rose accordingly.

The estimated population was 1,000 in the mid 1930s but declined by half for the early 1950s. In the 1970s it rebounded to 681 and was estimated at 800 for 2010.
