The name, ‘Edgewater’ comes from its being on the edge of the waters of the Columbia River. It was originally founded as a farming community before World War I. Many of its residents were from England, and returned there after the war, causing the community to suffer a decline in population. Edgewater has since recovered, and the area's economy includes forestry, agriculture, and tourism.
The townsite of Edgewater was begun as the service and settlement centre of the Columbia Valley Orchard project. Settlers would arrive with expectations of a rural British utopia, and so Edgewater was created in the image of an idealized English country village. The section of the irrigation system that was completed in 1913 is the basis for the irrigation system still used outside of Edgewater today.
