Scarborough Junction got its name in 1873, when a post office using the same moniker was opened in the Bell General Store which was located on the south-west corner of Kennedy Road and St. Clair Avenue. The Junction part of this name denotes the two railways - the Grand Trunk and the Toronto-Nippising - which met at the south end of this area.
In 1896, the Scarborough Junction was the most densely populated region in the previous Township of Scarborough. It had its own school, general store, and the Bethel Methodist Church. The historic Bethel Church Cemetery is silently nestled away off Kennedy Road, south of Eglinton Avenue.
The building of Scarborough Junction took place in the late 1940s and the 1950s when farm fields were swapped with rows of housing for war veterans' and cozy small bungalows. These houses sold very fast to young families who were looking for affordable residences in what was then the outskirts of Toronto.
