The town was established in 1882 when a prospector discovered gold on the farm Varkensfontein and formed the Nigel Gold Mining Company, named so because the prospector was reading Sir Walter Scott’s The Fortunes of Nigel at the time.

Today Nigel is an importent livestock farming and manufacturing town whose streets still bear names derived from Sir Walter Scott's book - 'The Fortunes of Nigel'.
