Durbanville had its own court house, jail and magistrate from the 1870s and became a Magisterial District of Bellville. The court house complex still exists in altered form within the Rust-en-Vrede complex, originally erected in 1850. A village management board was established in 1897 and a municipality in 1901.
The village grew rapidly after the turn of the 19th century and a local wagon industry developed. The King Brothers Wagon Works’ used to be South Africa‘s biggest wagon works. At the turn of the century, it employed more than 200 men, which just about accounted for the entire village.
Wine farming started in Durbanville in the 17th century, when farmers planted vineyards with Cape Madeira, the white grape of the time. Many of these farms now form part of the Wine Route today, and have award-winning wines, cultivated by generations of wine-makers. These wines can be sampled during the week.
