Philippolis is geographically located in the centre of southern Africa, in the province of the Free State. If one forms a star shape over the map of South Africa; we find that Philippolis - small and quaint - is located in the centre of the star. Historically Philippolis shows its great treasure. In 1823 - after the Toverberg mission was closed - Philippolis was founded. Dr John Philip, Superintendent of South Africa; was to have a missionary in this region. Philippolis is located just 60 kilometers north-west from the Gariep Dam and is the oldest settlement of the Free State. Philippolis received its name from Dr John Philip. "Philip" with the addition of the Greek word "polis", which means "city" = Philippolis!
