Scope and content
11135 - 84 Avenue.
This home, constructed by Tom Leake, was built in 1913 and then valued at $4,500. It is one of the original, unaltered structures still remaining in the neighbourhood. Sarah McLellan immigrated from Scotland in 1906 and purchased the lot from Laurent Garneau in 1907. He was the Metis farmer who owned most of the land on which the University of Alberta and the Garneau community are now located.
This residence is a larger version of the four square architectural style home with Arts and Crafts characteristics.
From 1916 to 1922, the house was used as a nurses' residence for the nurses working with WWI casualties at the military hospital that was located where the University of Alberta Hospital stands today.
