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 is a mature, well-established suburban community filled with single-family homes on tree-lined streets, a mix of low- and high-rise
apartments, and a thriving commercial centre along 41st Avenue.
The area - stretching from Blenheim to Granville Street/Angus Drive, and from 41st Avenue to Southwest Marine Drive - is considered one of
the most stable communities in Canada.
Early settlers in Kerrisdale, attracted by the semirural setting, developed
many homes in a variety of styles which still remain today. Architectural styles include English Arts and Crafts, Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor
Revival and the Beaux Art. Kerrisdale has retained many of its original homes and remains one of Vancouver's most pleasant neighbourhoods.
