Brief History - The City of Surrey acknowledges archaeological evidence showing that aboriginals had seasonal settlements near present-day Alex Fraser Bridge at Glenrose and St. Mungo's over 8,000 years ago. The area was home to both the Katzie Indian Band and the Semiahmoo Band who had traditional fishing campsites on the south bank of Barnston Island. This prehistoric settlement has left a rich archaeological record of occupation and use, which forms the basis of Surrey’s earliest history and community heritage.

The arrival of the Royal Engineers in 1858 and the launching of extensive land surveys a year later opened the area for pioneer settlement. By the early 1860s the forests were being cleared and the rich farmland in the fertile valleys was soon producing a livelihood for the new settlers. Lumber camps dotted the landscape and attracted Asian labour to further expose the resources of the area and to promote the emerging trails, roads and rails which began to focus the development around town centers, each with its own distinctive character.

Surrey was issued letters patent in 1879 and two years later a “Town Hall” was erected at Surrey Centre. The thriving area boasted a post office, blacksmith shop, church, Loyal Orange Lodge, as well as the homesteads of several pioneer families. Eventually, the civic center moved to Cloverdale in 1912 and then to the junction of the King George Highway and Highway #10 in 1962. In its long history, Surrey has evolved into a dynamic, diverse and growing community.
