History

10 km from Bang Khamoad (today's Ban Mo district) there is a big pond. The west side of the pond has a big Tummy-wood tree (Careya sphaerica Roxb.) or in Thai Kradon (ต้นกระโดน). The people from Dong Noi and Kokko and Mueang Lop Buri moved to here and established the village Ban Nong Kradon. When the village grew bigger and bigger, the government finally created a separate minor district (King Amphoe) Nong Don on July 15, 1968, when the three tambon Nong Don, Ban Klap and Don Thong were split off from Ban Mo district.

The minor district was upgraded to a full district on August 21, 1975.

Geography

Neighbouring districts are (from the north clockwise) Mueang Lop Buri of Lopburi Province, Phra Phutthabat, Ban Mo and Don Phut of Saraburi Province.

Administration

The district is subdivided into 4 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 34 villages (muban). Nong Don has township (thesaban tambon) status and covers 1.94 km² of tambon Nong Don. There are three Tambon administrative organizations (TAO) - the one of Ban Klab is also responsible for tambon Ban Prong.
