Overlooking Okanagan Lake by Carr's Landing in Late Winter
The settlement was named for Andrew Carr, an early settler as of around 1895, who died in 1910. The community and former steamer landing was officially designated only in 1951 as Carr's Landing, based on long-standing use by area residents, even though CPR steamer service had long since ended. In November 1981 the name was officially shortened to Carrs, yet the former name is still being used today.
In 1995, Carr's Landing and its three neighbouring settlements were amalgamated into the new municipality of Lake Country and it became one of the four wards within the municipality.
