"Through him the whole structure is held together and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord." (Ephesians 2:21)

White settlers were drawn to this area by the 1858 Cariboo Gold Rush. The West End was an out-of-the-way place and of little value compared with the Fraser Valley. It was not until 1862 that three young Englishmen, John Morton, William Hailstone and Samuel Brighouse decided to buy a piece of land in the area. For that action they were dubbed the "Three Greenhorns". The Greenhorns' land, now known as the West End, was officially called that in 1887 when the Vancouver School Board built and named the West End school

With the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's plans for a terminus beside the Greenhorns' acreage, the settlement of Georgia and Robson Streets and the establishment of Stanley Park, the West End's southern boundary became known and populated as a relaxing beach resort.
