Aberdeen - An Architectural Treasure. Situated in the delightful Camdeboo Plains of the Eastern Karoo - on the N9 between Graaff Reinet and the Garden Route - Aberdeen offers history for the mind and peace for the soul. The district is renowned for its wool and mohair, being the largest mohair producing area in South Africa. The town has an healthy climate, a restful and rural atmosphere, unpolluted air and unequaled starry night skies.

Aberdeen's delight is its seemingly unending source of water which comes from a natural spring, named Die Oog (The Eye), in the Fonteinbos reserve just outside the town. This fountain has never run dry and is the source of the leading water (leiwater) supplied to the lower portion of the town. Aberdeen is one of only three towns in South Africa with leiwater.

It is one of the best preserved Karoo towns with over 200 houses that date back to before 1890. About half of these houses have flat roofs with parapets. Aberdeen is a declared architectural conservation town due to it's variety of styles including Victorian, Georgian, Karoo, German, Gothic Revival, Russian, Art Nouveau and Flemish Revival. Excellent examples of the ostrich baron dwellings can be seen.
