In 1905, this lush South Vancouver land was quickly developing as a desirable residential neighbourhood, and soon warranted a station on the interurban line. R.H Sterling, manager of the B.C. Electric Railway, asked resident Mrs. William McKinnon to name the stop. She chose “Kerry’s Dale” after her family home, Kerrydale in Scotland. Over the years through repeated use, “Kerry’s Dale” fortuitously combined to form what is now known as Kerrisdale.
Recognizing the neighbourhood’s significance – yesterday’s and today’s – Cressey adds McKinnon to its collection of Kerrisdale homes. Building on the richness of history and community, Cressey continues to honour the ideals amongst the one-of-a-kind boutiques, cafes, and restaurants found in Kerrisdale.
