Garneau’s History

Garneau is named after one of its first inhabitants, Laurent Garneau (1840-1921). Garneau was a former Manitoba Metis rebel who, in 1869, took part in the Red River uprising under Louis Riel, which led to the formation of Manitoba in 1870. He was also a Hudson’s Bay Company employee and settled with his wife and family in the Garneau area around 1874.

From the beginning, the Garneau area was an architectural trend setter and hub for the arts, with the Varscona  and Garneau Theatres being built within two years of each other. The Varscona Theatre’s original building was demolished in May of 1987, but the name and theatre company has lived on in Strathcona. The original Garneau Theatre underwent extensive restoration in 2009 to bring it back to its former 1940s glory, and is currently the home of the Metro Cinema Society.

Garneau Today

The expansion of the adjacent University of Alberta and the development of the Whyte (82) Avenue commercial area have changed the residential makeup of Garneau over the years. Although some of the original single-detached homes remain, large portions of the neighbourhood have been redeveloped into row housing and apartment buildings. University student housing and fraternity houses are located in northwest Garneau. The neighbourhood also contains a significant number of commercial businesses located along 109 Street, Whyte Avenue, and 112 Street.

With everything that Garneau has to offer it’s no surprise that it came in as Edmonton’s 7th Best Neighbourhood to live in in 2017 by Avenue Magazine.
