The Squamish and Burrard Bands of the Coast Salish tribe inhabited these northern shores for over 7,000 years. The dense forests served as shelter, protection and supplied material for tools, carving, boats and construction.
It wasn't until the arrival of Captain Vancouver and other explorers after the late 1700's that the area would be developed into mills and a community of the first white settlers out of Europe. By the early 1900's, banks, hotels and shipyards were built and the city layout took shape as it is seen today.
