The District of Maple Ridge was incorporated in 1874.
On Sept. 12 of that year, a group of settlers met at John McIver's farm and decided that they should incorporate as a municipality. The choice of name came from the trees and topography of John McIver's farm.
Over time, neighbourhoods like Hammond, Whonnock, Webster's Corners, Ruskin, Albion, and Yennadon arose, each with its own post office, community centre, church, store, and school.
