The administrative and commercial centre of Walden, Lively was established in the 1950s as a company townsite for employees of INCO’s Creighton Mine facilities. It was named for an early settler, Charles Lively. Prior to the community’s establishment, a few family farms were located in the area. Lively’s postal delivery and telephone exchange also include the Mikkola subdivision, located at the eastern terminus of Highway 17’s freeway segment, and the Waters area. From the intersection of Municipal Roads 24 and 55, Lively refers to the area extending north along MR 24, Mikkola refers to the area extending eastward along MR 55 toward the Highway 17 interchange, and Waters refers to the area extending westward along MR 55 toward Naughton.
