Settlement of the area dates from the 1840s, with land used mainly for market gardens. Population was minimal until the 1880s, spurred by the extension of the railway line in 1887. Residential and commercial growth took place during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Substantial development occurred during the 1930s as market gardens were subdivided. The population increased slightly between 1991 and 2006 as new dwellings were added to the area, and then declined slightly between 2006 and 2011.
