Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool was founded on the 28th of January 1920 which marked it as the first Afrikaans-medium facility in the area. With Dutch and English as the common languages used in South Africa, the locals thought that Afrikaans should also have the same recognition and indeed, it became well-known and the number of people using the language grew very fast that it was proposed by Cornelis Jacobus Langenhoven to change the school to Afrikaans from Dutch gradually.

The library is also very rich in history with all the walls covered in pictures of those matric learners who left the school from way back the 1920's. It was used as a hall before and later developed as a library in 1999. Just this year, the museum was made available for those interested in exploring the school's heritage.
