About Valdor

Valdor was named after the Valdor Estate, which got its name from the French val d'or, meaning valley of gold. Over the decades, Valdor developed to gradually put away its agricultural past. Until the late 1970's, it was still very much an agricultural town.

The person credited to founding Valdor was a Teochew named Kee Lye Huat, who arrived in Seberang Perai in 1852. He was one of the many 19th century stories of rags to riches. Through living a frugal life, Kee managed to become a successful sugar planter. He was also lucky in marrying rich, when he was married to the daughter of his boss, Khaw Loh Hup, a pioneer sugar panter in the area.
