The origins of Crescent Town can be traced back to 1887 when Walter Massey lived in the area. Over the years, Massey gave away some of his land including 40 acres to Crescent School.
In 1969, the school’s property was sold to the developers who turned the community into what we see today.
The development phase of Crescent Town came to a completion in 1971.
