The information below is from a booklet "Introduction to Donald".

Johann August Meyer is considered locally to be the founder of the township of Donald. In 1863 he set up a store and liquor shanty by a bridge that had been built over the Richardson river. Quite an entrepeneur, Johann knew the bridge had become a camping ground for drovers, travellers, teamsters and herdsman.

When the bridge was relocated in 1864, Johann Meyer built a weatherboard store and hotel near the site of the present Mount Jeffcott Hotel. The name "Donald" (named after William Donald) first appeared on a survey map in 1866.
