Dates of existence

1876 - 1925


The Edmonton Hotel began in 1876 when Donald Ross turned the second floor of his homestead into a dormitory and started serving meals. Three expansions took place over the next 25 years. The hotel played an important part in Edmonton's early life, acting as a meeting place as well as a hostelry. The hotel was managed by Joseph Hostyn from about 1908 to 1915. The wooden hotel building burnt down in 1928.
