Community Information:

In the early 1800's, the one thousand acres of land bounded by Bayview Avenue to the west, Leslie Street to the east, Highway 7 to the south and Sixteenth Avenue to the north had five owners. The original Hamlet of Dollar with 1.5 acre lots at the corner of Leslie Street and Highway 7 was part of the 200 acres adjacent to the north side of Highway 7. The piece to the north of that was granted to King's College in 1828. Part of that tract ended up in the hands of David Leek. Berczy settler, Melchior Quantz took possession of the middle 200 acres. One of the Quantz homes still remains at 8763 Bayview Avenue in the commercial plaza on the east side at the intersection of Bayview Avenue and High Tech Road.

Today, much of the eastern portion of these five parcels of land have been consolidated into the Beaver Creek Business Park. Here, Leek Crescent is named after David Leek, one of the former owners. The lands to the west of Beaver Creek, now, form the community of Doncrest. Here, Doncrest Road, still, runs north and south with Doncrest Valley on the west side, but, it no longer connects to Highway 7.
