History - Early Settlers

Krondorf (Kronsdorf) - Settlement approximately 4 km south of Tanunda.  The area was first settled in 1847 by Germans from nearby Bethany.   Under the Nomenclature Act of 1917 many German place names in the Barossa Valley were changed; Krondorf was changed to Kabminye.  The name Krondorf was restored in 1975.
