In the beginning, the area was very swampy and discouraged settlement. It was settled by farmers in the early 1700s. Farmers soon discovered the rich soil and how well crops and livestock did there. By the mid-1700s, the farmers had drained portions of the swampy lands and cut back vegetation to create more land to work. By the mid to late 1800s, several rail and trolley lines served the area and opened it up to those seeking to escape the big city. Beginning in about 1867, the area began to shift from farmland to developed land. Benjamin Hitchcock, a residential neighborhood builder, began to develop the area on a large scale and over time it grew into the neighborhood we know today.
