Aberdeen Drive 1969 

 

Aberdeen Drive was named in 1971 by the owners of the property on which it was located, the Goodall family.  Chartwell properties did the subdivision.  Mr Goodall originally suggested Richmont Drive because the area had been called Richmont Heights for 70 years, but finally decided on Aberdeen Drive after the town in Scotland where he had descendents (HCL).
