A Brief History of Surrey, British Columbia
Surrey has a long history dating back thousands of years, long before the concept of new condos for sale in surrey BC existed, the first inhabitants were the Coast Salish people, specifically the Semiahmoo, Katzie, and Kwantlen First Nations. These indigenous groups led a hunter-gatherer lifestyle and were adept at navigating the area’s diverse ecosystems.
European contact began in the late 18th century, with the arrival of Spanish and British explorers.
The Hudson’s Bay Company established the trading post of Fort Langley in 1827, just to the east of Surrey’s present location, marking the beginning of European settlement in the region.
Surrey was officially incorporated as a municipality on November 10, 1879, and the name “Surrey” was chosen by Englishman H.J. Brewer who looked across the Fraser River from New Westminster and was reminded of County Surrey in his homeland due to the area’s resemblance, particularly the rolling landscapes.
Surrey’s Rural Beginnings
Early Surrey was dominated by agriculture. Its fertile land, combined with the accessibility provided by the Fraser River, made it ideal for farming, with dairy, poultry, berry, and vegetable production. With the completion of the New Westminster Rail Bridge in 1904 and the Pacific Highway in 1913, Surrey began to grow as an essential transportation hub.
Post-War New Home Boom in Surrey
The population of Surrey remained relatively small until the mid-20th century. Following the Second World War, Surrey real estate became a hot commodity with a significant influx of population due to the suburbanization and the post war baby boom. Almost all of the new post war residential development was made up of low density single family houses for a primarily working and middle class clientele. Shopping and commercial development originally along major thoroughfares became concentrated in the various malls in Surrey starting with Guildford Town Centre in 1966. The opening of the Pattullo Bridge in 1937 and the Port Mann Bridge in 1964, further enhanced Surrey’s connectivity and growth.
Surrey Becomes a City
In 1993, Surrey officially became a city, and since then, it has continued to grow rapidly, becoming the second-most populous city in British Columbia. Surrey has evolved into a multicultural city, with diverse ethnic communities contributing to its vibrant culture.
Surrey’s history is preserved in its heritage sites, like the Historic Stewart Farm and the Surrey Museum, which offer a glimpse into the past. Annual events like the Surrey Fusion Festival and the Vaisakhi Parade celebrate the city’s multicultural heritage and are a testament to the city’s inclusive spirit.
