Hennenman is a small town in the Free State goldfields in the Lejweleputswa District Municipality of the Free State province of South Africa. The settlement is unusual for the district as being supported by agriculture rather than the mining industry.
In 1944, black South Africans were confined to a segregated enclave in southern Hennenman. During apartheid, this area was cleared by order of the government and nearly all then-residents relocated to a new township some fifteen kilometres away, Vergenoeg (now Phomolong).
Coat of arms
Hennenman established a municipality in 1947. The council later assumed a coat of arms, and registered it with the Orange Free State Provincial Administration in January 1958.
The arms were : Vert, three barrulets or between in chief a ripe mealie cob proper between two bezants and in base a cogwheel of the second, i.e. a green shield displaying a mealie cob between two golden discs at the top, three horizontal golden lines across the middle, and a golden cogwheel at the bottom.
