The small town of Frankfort is situated in the heart of a fertile farming region. Frankfort is situated on the Wilge River and many of the streets are lined with palm trees giving the town the look of an oasis.
The town was established in 1869 and became a municipality in 1896. One of the main buildings in the area is the Dutch Reformed Church.
The first thing that you notice on approaching Frankfort is the grain silos. The surrounding areas produce a lot of maize as well as beef cattle.
