Willoughby East Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the 1890s, with land used mainly for dairy farms, tanneries and market gardens. Growth was slow until subdivision in the 1920s and 1930s. Significant development occurred during the post-war years. The population increased gradually from the early 1990s as new dwellings were added to the area, particularly medium and high density housing.
