Whonnock Real Estate | Whonnock Homes For Sale
Whonnockians have a sense of place and community derived from comparative isolation and shared needs, often different from that of residents of urban areas. There is a certain pride in Whonnock’s past; the Whonnock post office, community organizations, and Whonnock Lake Centre add to the feeling of community. Agriculture never played a large part in Whonnock life. Today many people keep horses, and have poultry, sheep, goats and llamas. Residents seem to enjoy life in the country even if the wells may dry up in summer and in spite of the occasional power outages in winter.
The first permanent white settler and landowner in Whonnock was the Scot Robert Robertson who settled in Whonnock in 1861. Few followed his example until around 1885, when the railroad came to Whonnock bringing new settlers. They adopted the name of its resident First Nation for their community, Whonnock, in a variety of contested spellings. From 1885 onward Whonnock rapidly became the focal point for settlers all over the eastern part of Maple Ridge as well as Glen Valley across the Fraser and on lands across the Stave River. Whonnock boasted a railway station, a school, a general store and a number of churches, amenities not available elsewhere for some time.
