The pleasant little village of Tonieville has always been a progressive community in a prosperous farming section. When the railroad came through in 1888, the people needed a station stop because there was much need for shipping out and bringing in products of the farms and merchandise for two stores and blacksmith shops. And the name of the town was so named for two of the largest landowners nearby. These landowners were Tone Goodin and Tone Kenneday and were known by the name of “Tone” (probably short for Anthony).
