Kensington Prairie

KENSINGTON PRAIRIE was an AGRICULTURAL district in SURREY, 20 km southwest of NEW WESTMINSTER just north of the area now known as Sunnyside. It was named by H.T. Thrift, a Surrey pioneer, after Kensington, England, and first logged (see LOGGING) and settled in the 1880s. A ditch was dug to the NICOMEKL R so that timber could be floated to booming grounds (see LOG BOOMING) in MUD BAY.
