Description

Before the rural postal route came into effect a lot of farmers throughout Oxford County were becoming tired of traveling to the nearest town to get their mail. But in order to get mail, your town needs to have a name. Such is the case of a little town in Southern Ontario, whose choice of name, Zenda, would propel the town to fame (if not fortune) in the middle of the 20th century.
