Taren Point Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the mid 1800s. Population was minimal until the late 1800s, when oyster farming was established. Most of the area was used for industry, with the residential section in the west built from 1911. Many of the early houses were fishing shacks and weekenders (some of which still exist). The most significant residential development occurred from the 1960s. The population declined slightly during the 1990s, and then increased between 2001 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area, particularly between 2006 and 2011, largely medium and high density housing.
