History

Part of a Scottish settlement established by Alexander McCorkindale in 1868, it was proclaimed a town in June 1881.[2] At first called Roburnia, in honour of Scottish Poet Robert Burns, the name was changed on 5 July 1882 to Amsterdam, after the Dutch city where the State Secretary, Eduard Bok, was born, and out of gratitude for Dutch sympathy during the First Anglo-Boer War (1880-1881).[2]
