Albertskroon is a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. It is located in Region 4.

History[edit]

The suburb is named after the previous landowner and descendants of Hendrick Abraham Alberts.[2] The word Kroon in its name refers to a crown of a hill.[2] The land is situated on the portion of an old Witwatersrand farm called Waterval around 1896.[2]
