Edenvale formed part of the farm number 9, Rietfontein. This farm was owned by Tobias Mynhardt who subdivided the farm in 1890 into four major areas, namely: Eastleigh, Edenvale, Modderfontein Boundary to Elandsfontein station, and the last quarter he retained.
In 1903, Edenvale was a cosy village, where a small group of Cornish miners settled. This year also saw the first land being sold by John Eden. Eastleigh was subdivided into ¼ acre stands. Stands were sold at 20Pounds, or 2Pound deposit and a monthly instalment of 1Pound. The low prices encouraged the public to purchase, build and settle. The majority of purchases were by the miners from the Rietfontein Mining Company.
