History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The District of Maple Ridge was incorporated September 12, 1874. It covered an area of 33,000 acres (130 km2) yet only had approximately 50 families living in the district. Maple Ridge is British Columbia's fifth-oldest municipality (after New Westminster, Victoria, Langley, and Chilliwack). Until the expansion of Metro Vancouver (the GVRD) it was part of the now-defunct Dewdney-Alouette Regional District with the city of Pitt Meadows and District of Mission and other north-side communities east to Chehalis.
