Westboro was considered cottage country during the late nineteenth century. Sawmills opened in the 1870s, attracting workers and community businesses. The village has gone through several transitions over the decades and experienced significant gentrification in the early 2000s. The growth was sparked by the arrival of Ottawa's first Mountain Equipment Co-op store. Other retailers followed suit, turning Westboro into one of the city's trendiest neighbourhoods.
