One of the largest employers, the Government of Canada complex, Tunney's Pasture, is named after Anthony Tunney, an Irish immigrant, who lived on Mechanicsville's Lyndale Avenue for the last 25 years of his life, which was his second home, after his first was destroyed in a fire. It's a snapshot into life in the 1890s. He was one of the first to purchase a lot on what is now Parkdale Avenue, overlooking Tunney's Pasture. He used to graze his and other lumber merchants' animals on what was then a vacant lot and the name unofficially became known as and adopted Tunney's Pasture.
