History of the neighborhood

Bryker Woods can be traced back to as early as 1886, but the first subdivision with the actual name of Bryker Woods didn’t appear until 1936.  It is believed that the name of the neighborhood was derived from combining the names of two of its developers, J.C. Bryant and McFall Kerbey.
