Originally known as Vaunder, Vonda became a town in 1905. And with strong francophone roots, the town served as a major hub for the province’s French-speaking residents. In fact, it still serves the province’s French community today with Ecole Providence, a French Language school. (Children seeking an English education need to attend nearby Aberdeen Composite School.) But don’t let that fool you.
Throughout the Prohibition, Vonda was the Moonshine Capital and well-known for the many distinctive home brews to come out of the area. (Hence, the World’s Largest Still on the south end of Main Street.) Today, however, the community is better known for the Highline Manufacturing plant that specializes in the building of farm equipment such as the rock picker located next to the giant still.
