The Central Methodist Mission opened the Chermside Garden Settlement in 1936 in response to the problems experienced by the aged during the depression. The donation of land in 1935 by soft-drink manufacturer, George Marchant started the development. The first twenty-five cottages were built on this land and by 1939 nine more cottages and a bowling green were operating.
