Bon Accord History
The Town of Bon Accord is rooted in agriculture with a rich history beginning in the late 1800s. Early development in and around present-day Bon Accord was led by Scottish immigrants who came to settle and work the land. A meeting of locals resulted in the name ‘Bon Accord District’, chosen due to settlers’ familial connections to the City of Aberdeen, Scotland. ‘Bon Accord’, meaning “Good Agreement” is the motto of Aberdeen, derived in the 14th century.
During the 20th century, Bon Accord steadily grew as a thriving agricultural community. Development of the railway provided local settlers with a means of selling their products and connecting to communities throughout the region. This steady growth culminated in the creation of the Village of Bon Accord in 1964, and the Town of Bon Accord in 1979. The Town has evolved and diversified from its rural beginnings, but its agricultural roots remain distinctly evident in the surrounding landscape, visible heritage, and character of its residents.
