For over a hundred years from the 1800s until the mid 1900s, Humberlea was a budding farming community. The north division of this neighbourhood above Wallasey Avenue and Flindon Road was owned by the Griffith brothers, who had farms on both sides of Weston Road. In the 1940s, the Griffith farms were bought by the federal government for the building of the Humberlea War Veterans subdivision. World War II Veterans were given a quarter acre estate on which they built simple frame dwellings. These humble abodes have since been subdivided although many of the original properties still remain.
The streets around the present day Acacia Park are part of a small housing pocket developed in the early 1900s. This neighbourhood was earlier known as Albion Park and is now considered part of the Humberlea commune. At the south perimeter of Humberlea was the Caulfield dairy farm. Not startlingly, the cattle grazed on pastures west of Weston Road while the Caulfield barn sat on the east side of Weston Road. This farm functioned until the 1950s when it was purchased by developers. The subdivision of the old Caulfield farm led to the development of the present day area.
