The area was originally named Dublin Heights after Dublin Farm which was located near Sheppard Avenue and Dufferin Street. Dublin Farm was owned by William Duncan, an immigrant from Ireland in 1827 who paid $3.50 an acre for his 200 acre farm.

Duncan had a significant impact on the growth of Dublin Heights. He personally oversaw the building of Dublin Heights neighborhood’s first school and hired the first schoolmaster. Duncan also served as a highly respected Justice of the Peace for York Township.
