Aldergrove is situated on a hill with Langley to the west and Vancouver 59 km (37 mi) to the east.

A Step Back in Time

British Columbia joined confederation on July 20, 1871, upon the promise of a railway link with the new Dominion of Canada. On April 26, 1873, the Municipality of Langley was incorporated, one of the first areas in British Columbia to do so.

The Township remained largely rural in nature until the construction of the Fraser Highway in the 1920s and the construction of the Patullo Bridge in 1937 bringing commercial growth to the area. The Trans-Canada Highway was completed through Langley in 1964.

The community of Aldergrove is surrounded by farming country but the town has retained its past of the 1940s and 1950s and is well-known for its second-hand shops and the Telephone Museum.
