Viljoenskroon is a maize and cattle farming town located in the Northern Free State. It was named after the original farm owner J. J. Viljoen and his horse Kroon (Crown). The town was laid out in 1921 on the farm “Mahemskuil” and became a municipality in 1925.
Viljoenskroon historically played a part in providing residential opportunities to the adjacent mining communities at Lace Diamond Mine and the Orkney gold mines. This quiet town is situated in the middle of the maize industry.
