Homes for Sale in Edmonton
AUDREY ABUAN - RE/MAX Real Estate REALTOR®
McLeod is located in north Edmonton within the Casselman-Steele District. McLeod is only a 15 minute commute to the Edmonton Garrison. Housing construction in McLeod was well under way in the 1950s, and the houses were almost entirely built out by 1980.
Unique to McLeod is the fact that almost all of its residential properties were developed as single-detached dwellings. Most of these housing units were built during the 1960s, with higher density infill development occurring during the 1970s. McLeod’s design is typical of the time in which it was subdivided. Streets are laid out in crescents and cul-de-sacs, and its residential lots are of a generous size.
This community was named after Murdoch McLeod, an early pioneer who arrived in Canada from Scotland after signing on with the Hudson Bay Company in 1861. McLeod spent six years in the Arctic, was held prisoner in Manitoba during the Riel Rebellion, and moved to Edmonton in 1879 to farm in the Belmont area.
