Geocache Description:


The origin of the name “Urbandale” is not known. The Des Moines neighborhood now known as Beaverdale was originally known as “Urbandale”, and the street car line was known as the Urbandale Line. Early residents have said that the turnaround, originally known as “Walker Station” eventually became known as the “Urbandale Station”.

The railroad/street car line owners had acquired 160 acres around the station and subdivided it into a plat called Urbandale on March 6, 1907, and the subsequent development became known as “Urbandale”. The original Urbandale neighborhood then adopted the Beaverdale name to distinguish itself from the new Urbandale development.
