Glenora’s History

Glenora is one of Edmonton’s older residential areas, and is part of an area originally staked out by Malcolm Groat in 1869 as part of a 900 acre land claim immediately west of the Hudson’s Bay Reserve. In 1906, the land was sold to Montreal realtor James Carruthers, who planned the area as an exclusive estate development. To regulate its exclusivity, Carruthers placed a caveat on the land, which required that no house built in Glenora could cost less than $3,500.

Many of the original homes constructed in the 1910s remain in Glenora, while other homes have been rebuilt over past decades. This provides an interesting architectural snapshot of Edmonton’s residential trends over the past century.

Glenora Today

It is in Glenora where you will find some of Edmonton’s most stunning homes overlooking the North Saskatchewan River. The river valley and McKinnon ravine attract people from all over the city.
