Oasis Bethulie Free State
Bethulie is derived from the French Bethulia, which means “Chosen by God”. A
mission station was established in 1829 by the London Missionary Society for
the local San people, and was then known as Moordernaarspoort (Murderers Pass)
because of a battle between Griqua raiders and Sotho tribes. In 1833 the
French Missionary Society took over control of the mission and renamed it
Bethulia. In 1863 a town was established and called Heidelberg, which in 1872
was renamed after the mission station. The original mission buildings still
stand, one of which is the oldest remaining dwelling built by European
settlers. It was built by the Rev. Jean Pellisier, the first French missionary
to be stationed here, and is currently home to the Pellisier House Museum.
