Geography and History
Noupoort is a town in the eastern Karoo region of the Northern Cape province of South Africa. Nelspoort is situated 54 km south of Colesberg and 45 km north of Rosmead Junction.
In 1881 the railway line from Port Elizabeth ended on the farm Carlton. With the diversion of the railway line to Colesberg in 1883/4 a station was built on part of the farm Hartebeeshoek of Mr Barend Kruger. The station was named Naauwpoort after the adjacent farm. In 1963 the name was changed to Noupoort.
In 1992 a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center was established n the area by Pastor Sophos Nissiotis. The Noupoort Christian Care Center brought much needed relief in terms of job creation and attracting foreign money into the local economy. In addition to this, the center has many social responsibility programs such as Outreach, Feeding Schemes and donation schemes.
