A bit of HISTORY
Sullivan Station was at one time known as a major logging, lumber milling and shingle manufacturing community. Since the construction of the Station at the BC Electric Railway in 1923, Sullivan Station became a hot spot that linked the district eastward to Cloverdale and into New Westminster and Vancouver.
Sullivan Station began with only a few settlers , the original settlement known as the Johnston Settlement. The Johnston Settlement was James Johnston, wife and their four sons, who cleared the land and made the area their home. The homestead took quite a vast space of land that stretched from Hwy. 10, north to 72nd Ave, east to 160th Ave and west to 144th Street.
The Sullivan Community Hall was built in 1928, another hallmark of the district. This was where people would gather for meetings and dances. Their first post office was opened in 1913 and a two room elementary school was built in 1912 to accommodate the growing community. The school was named Johnston Road School, which later changed its name to Sullivan Elementary in 1975.
