Being the only freehold land available anywhere on the Witwatersrand, it was a good opportunity for them to purchase land. It was freely available to all except the people it would have benefited the most, the black and coloured communities. The white miners started buying the plots of land and when they did, the town began to grow rapidly.
Due to the growing urbanisation of the black population in the 1920's to 1930's the informal settlements began to sprawl over the land given to them by two of the local farmers. By 1958, it was necessary to purchase land for a new township. The following year the people, who lived in Amagogokweni, as the old shack area was known, were moved to the new township called Thokoza. Edenpark was established in 1976 to accommodate the re-located coloured families of Edenvale and Kempton Park.
Alberton has been a big centre of industry for many years, with engineering works, foundries, sheet metal works, paint factories, sawmills, furniture manufacturing and textiles.
