History

Vader was originally named Little Falls and incorporated as such on Jaunary 12, 1906. The name was changed to Sopenah by the Northern Pacific Railway because there was already a Little Falls on their rail lines, Little Falls, Minnesota. The townspeople did not like the new name and petitioned the state legislature to change it to Toronto. A dispute then arose which was resolved by a compromise agreement to name the town after a German resident named Vader. The town name was changed to Vader by the legislature on March 25, 1913. Mr. Vader later moved to Florida.[3]
