Tel Mond was founded in 1929 by Alfred Mond, 1st Baron Melchett. Lord Melchett was a British industrialist, a former cabinet minister and president of the British Zionist Foundation. The Israel Plantations Company, headed by Mond, purchased land in the region and planted citrus orchards to provide employment for Jewish laborers. In 1933, a group of farmers purchased land from the company and established Moshav Tel Mond. In 1936, another group established Moshav Kfar Ziv, named after Baron Sieff who followed Lord Melchett and settled in Tel Mond with his wife. In 1943, new immigrants from Yemen established Shechunat Ya'akov. In the 1950s, Neve Oved and Hadar Hayim were built to accommodate the large wave of immigration (mainly from Yemen) after the founding of the state. In 1954, all these communities were merged to form the Local Council of Tel Mond. The surrounding moshavim, Kfar Hess, Herut and Ein Vered, were also founded by the pioneers of Tel Mond.
Over the past decade, the community has grown from a small town to a self-sufficient mini-city that provides services for other regional communities. It is growing rapidly, and is expected to have a population exceeding 25,000 in 2030.
In June 2017, the Ministry of the Interior appointed Att. Shmuel Siso as Mayor of Tel Mond.
