Kerrisdale has roots dating back to the turn of the century, when it was originally named “Kerrydale” after the wife of the railroad owner’s hometown in Scotland. The name means “Little Seat of the Fairies.” The name evolved to its present day named “Kerrisdale.” Known for its upscale shopping village, which is affiliated with the oldest local business association in Canada, Kerrisdale and its village are the epicenter of the upscale neighbourhoods of Vancouver’s prestigious West Side.
