  1. The name Eldoret is derived from the Massai word ‘eldore’, which literally means stony river. … The locals at that time referred to the town as Farm 64 or Sisibo because, the town of Eldoret was 64 miles away from the newly established Uganda Railway railhead, located at Kibigori. The farm was owned by Willy van Aardt.
