Ladismith is situated in the Little Karoo at the foot of the Klein Swartberg mountain range. The majestic Towerkop, with it split peak, looms above the town. Local legend has it that an angry witch, flying overhead, struck the peak with her wand, causing the split which today is seen from afar.
The town was established in 1852. Named after Lady Juana Smith, wife of the Governer of the Cape, Sir Harry Smith, the original "Ladysmith" was changed in 1879 to "Ladismith" to prevent confusion with a similarly named town in Kwazulu-Natal.
It serves an extensive farming area with ideal climate for the production of quality fruit - apricots, peaches, plums, nectarines and grapes.
