The History of Point Grey

Point Grey is said to have once been ‘the Battleground of the West Wind’. The First Nations has a god of the West Wind, who they call Homolsom – named from two tribes out of Squamish and the Fraser River. Whether or not a battle was waged here, in the spirit world or beyond, is an interesting notion that makes Point Grey increasingly magical. As for the name itself, ‘Point Grey’ was appointed after Captain George Grey, a good friend of George Vancouver, earning him the title rights to this amazing Vancouver community.
