Birth of A Community — Part 2

The second part of my brief history of early Grandview covers some aspects of the 1880-1899 period. In particular, it looks at some efforts to open the area to development, including the opening of the interurban railway between Vancouver and New Westminster, and a speculative real estate boom which failed completely.

Part 3 will look at the small band of pioneer settlers who chose to live in Grandview between 1891 and the 1901 Census.
