Beaufort West lies south of a ridge of hills between two rivers, the Gamka and Kuils, and to the north the Nuweveld Mountains with  230-million years old rocks. With its municipality proclaimed in 1837, Beaufort West is the oldest and largest town in the Karoo region of the Western Cape province of South Africa.

The town was founded in 1818 and initially named Beaufort after Henry Somerset, 5th Duke of Beaufort, who was the father of Lord Charles Henry Somerset, then governor of the Cape Colony. The town was renamed Beaufort West in 1869.

Beaufort West is a typical "platteland" town with a rich, romantic history. The Bushmen once lived here and fine examples of their rock engravings can still be seen on farms and at nearby Nelspoort. Fine examples of the Beaufort West’s early architecture can be seen on a comfortable walk through its historic centre. These cover a mixture of flamboyant Victorian, elegant Georgian, serene Edwardian, Eclectic, Romanesque, Cape Dutch, Neo-Gothic, Neo-Classic and Contemporary styles. Examples of typical Karoo cottages still survive. Some of these buildings, the old Town Hall, the old Mission Church and the Barnard House, all now part of the museum, as well as Matoppo House and Clyde House, are national monuments.

The main street of Beaufort West was named in honour of Sir Rufane Donkin, who acted as Governor from 1820 to ’21. Sir Rufane, a true romantic, lost his wife while they were stationed in India. So devastated was he that he had his beloved Elizabeth’s hearth embalmed and he took it with him everywhere. When Sir Rufane died, Elizabeth’s heart was buried with him in England.

At its north endof Beaufort West is the local  jail, built in 1873, a building of considerable presence, executed in the heavy Neo-Classic manner of the mid-Victorian period. Nobody seems to know why it was built in the main street. Its first jailer, an African-American, was also jailed there for negligence on duty - but he escaped, never to be seen again.
