HISTORY

Colonel Walter O’Hara settled in Roncesvalles in 1850 after immigrating from Ireland. The name Roncesvalles comes from the Roncesvalles Gorge in Northern Spain where O’Hara was wounded and captured by the French when he was a soldier in the British army.  He named streets after his family, such as O’Hara, Geoffrey, Constance, Marion, and Sorauren. Following WWII, an influx of Eastern Europeans, predominantly from Poland, settled in Roncesvalles, and it still has a strong Polish community today.
