Early explorers passed through the region which includes current-day Upper Eagle Ridge and the larger area of Coquitlam, however European settlement did not occur until the 1860s. Coquitlam was “a place in between” with the opening of North Road in the 1800s. The purpose of the road was to provide Royal engineers in New Westminster access to port facilities in Port Moody, however, the effect was to provide access to a larger area between and to areas east. The early years were times of settlement and agriculture. Growth in the area was slow but steady and in 1891 the District of Coquitlam was officially incorporated. In the waning years of the 19th century, Fraser Mills, a state-of-the-art lumber mill opened on the north bank of the Fraser River. Houses sprang-up as well as a store, hospital, post office, barber shop, and pool hall. A year later, mill owners welcomed a contingent of 110 experienced loggers from Quebec. More loggers came the year after and the town has continued to grow until current day.
