Kuils River was originally called de Kuijlen or De Bos. It was a Dutch East India post which grew to be a small village during the 1700s. The name Kuils river comes from pools along the river. (Afrikaans/ Dutch for dams) In 1843 a Rhenish church was built in Sarepta and a road was built to the area in 1845. Nearly 20 years later in 1862, a railway station was built. A school and more residences were commissioned in 1898. Yet Kuils River only achieved municipal status in 1950.
