History

The first railway to arrive in the Edmonton area was the Calgary and Edmonton Railway in 1891. It stopped south of the river, and a small hamlet was established at the railhead. This hamlet was incorporated as the Town of Strathcona in 1899, and then as a city in 1907. On February 1, 1912 Strathcona amalgamated with the City of Edmonton and Stathcona’s administrative functions were absorbed by the City of Edmonton.
