Kranshoek is a settlement in Eden District Municipality. Kranshoek was founded in the early years of the 20th century by a group of Griqua trekkers under the leadership of Abraham le Fleur who had been displaced from their land in Kokstad. Le Fleur also founded the Griqua National Conference in 1904 and the Griqua Independent Church. A local monument, erected in 1942, celebrates the early Griqua pioneers. The Kranshoek area is now a diverse area with different cultures.
The Kranshoek e-Centre is managed by John Koopman and officially started operations on 7 April 2015. The e-centre is there to assist the members of the community in enhancing themselves with the necessary skills in using the computer, gain access to the internet, e-mail and do research for business and work opportunity.
