Klaarstroom was originally called Pietersburg The current name means “Clear stream” This would refer to the water that flows off the Swartburg mountains. As a result of this water, the vineyards flourish and produce wonderful grapes. This in turn produces the best Witblits which is a distilled spirit from the grapes. There are those who swear by its medicinal qualities, others insist it affects eyesight.
The otherwise sleepy town was the scene of a commotion during the Anglo-Boer War when Denys Reitz and his flying commando galloped through the British-held town.
The town has kept its rural sleepy atmosphere but there is a dam in the area that is offered as a skinny dipping venue.
