Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, with land used mainly for farming. Land was first subdivided in the 1880s. Significant development did not occur until the 1970s, with rapid growth during the 1970s and 1980s, including public housing construction. The population declined slightly from the early 1990s, largely a result of dwelling stock loss as part of the Minto Renewal Project.
