Most of the land in between these two sites, was Penticton Indian Reserve #3, owned by Antoine and Johnny Pierre.

Johnny Pierre settled in the area in 1886 and recorded the land as a reserve.

In 1905, there was a land exchange and Indian Reserve 3A was created adjacent to IR#1, near Faulder.

These lands became Summerland’s downtown.

Summerland was incorporated as a municipality on Dec. 21, 1906. The first election was held Jan. 14, 1907 and the first council members were sworn in on Jan. 21, 1907.
