La Paris dates back to 1699 when Willem Adriaan van der Stel as a newly appointed governor awarded the farm to Francois Retief. The French Hugenot later married Marie Mouij. They became the founders of the Retief family in South Africa. Francois named the farm La Paris which was both nostalgic and filled with hopes for the future. They farmed with wheat, vineyards and livestock.
