Cannon Hill is thought to have be named by a surveyor who noted down that two tree stumps resembled a cannon. More likely Cannon Hill was named after the Weedon family home 'Cannon Hill House'. Built in 1867, the house, which had extensive grounds and a maze, burnt down in 1927. This house was build opposite of the present day primary school. 
The railway was opened in 1889 going though Cannon Hill to Cleveland. At the same time blocks of land near the station were offered for sale.
Cannon Hill is home to many shops and restaurants. Major shopping centres include the Cannon Hill Shopping Plaza and Urban Village Cannon Hill.
Cannon Hill is well serviced by public transport and is located in zones 2 and 3 of the TransLink integrated public transport system. Cannon Hill is also serviced by two major roads which allow for easy transportation around the city.
