In regards to European settlement, Metro Vancouver was first settled around 1858, when New Westminster was founded on the Fraser, but Vancouver proper had its first settlers, also near the Fraser, in 1862. The city itself was officially founded in 1886, with the first settled areas located on Burrard Inlet in present day Gastown and East Vancouver. After initial settlement the Vancouver region experienced rapid growth, with the city of Vancouver's population reaching 100,000 by 1911.
