History | Kerrisdale Community Centre, Recreation, Vancouver BC
http://vancouver.ca/parks/cc/kerrisdale/website/history.cfm

The first settlers in Kerrisdale were the Irish McCleery brothers, who came to the area in 1867 to farm the meadows where the golf course now bearing their name is located.

When the Steveston fish canneries began to flourish, a need for workers prompted the CPR to construct a railway from Vancouver to Lulu Island.

The "Sockeye Special," as it was called, went through the heart of Kerrisdale, providing transportation for the first influx of people.

Kerrisdale acquired its name in 1905, when the B.C. Electric Railway took over the line from the CPR.

Mrs. MacKinnon, one of the area's earliest residents, was asked by the line's general manager to name the tram stop at Wilson Road (now 41st).

In 1908, the area joined the new municipality of Point Grey and the first election was held January 11, 1908.

The present Kerrisdale Centennial Park was the site of the original City Hall which at that time contained the Council chamber, municipal offices, the police court and a two cell jail.

From 1904 to 1912, Kerrisdale boasted a general store and post office, a hardware store and a real estate office, at the intersection of Wilson Road and West Boulevard.

In 1912, Frank Bowser and Frank Burd built the Bowser Block, which still occupies the southwest corner of the intersection.

Streetcar service arrived on 41st Avenue in 1912, passing through the developing commercial area at 41st Ave.

Kerrisdale retains the basic development pattern of the early years, established by the Wilson Road and Vancouver-Lulu island train tracks.
