William Vondy came to America in 1871 from the Isle of Man. William homesteaded originally in Kansas. He and Rebecca Bandola Peterson were married in 1877. They purchased the land for the Vondy farm from the City and County of Denver in 1905, where they raised 12 of their 17 children.
William planted the fields with the seeds of oats he had brought with him from the Isle of Man and also raised corn, alfalfa, peaches, apples, and the primary livestock were hogs. The farm is currently owned and operated by his great-granddaughter, Debra Vondy Wacker and her husband Chris, and son Jared.
