A Brief History of RICHMOND, BRITISH COLUMBIA
The City of Richmond BC is situated in the Greater Vancouver Regional District, directly south of the City
of Vancouver, just off Highway #99. Richmond is known as the “Island City” as it is comprised of a
series of islands at the mouth of the Fraser River, including Sea Island, part of Lulu Island and 15 smaller
islands.
Richmond has an average January temperature of 3.4°C and an average July temperature of 18°C. The
average annual rainfall is 1,239 mm and the average annual snowfall is 37 cm.
The population of Richmond numbers approximately 174,461.

HISTORY
The area’s first inhabitants were the Coast Salish First Nations, though mainly they just visited the
islands on fishing excursions. In 1861 Col. R.C. Moody, while surveying southern BC and selecting
town sites on the Fraser River named Sea Island and Lulu Island. Moody named Lulu Island after
American actress Lulu Street.
In 1862 the first settler, Hugh McRoberts purchased 648 ha on Sea Island and named his farm Richmond
View after his previous home in Australia. A slow but steady immigration of farmers began and by 1879
the area had approximately 30 families.
The first bridge connecting Richmond with the mainland was constructed in 1889; by 1902 a railway link
also existed. With improved connections, Richmond had become primarily a residential area within the
vicinity of Greater Vancouver. In 1931 the Vancouver International Airport was built on Sea Island.

TODAY
Today, Richmond is an urban centre with a mixture of residential and commercial property, agricultural
lands, industrial parks and nature areas.
Richmond is an important transportation centre as it is serviced by two major highways and highway
connections via Deas Island Freeway, which leads to the Trans Canada Highway, the American border,
and the Ferry Terminal to Vancouver Island. Vancouver International Airport is based at Sea Island in
Richmond and the city is also serviced by two railway lines as well as two international seaports.
