Listings in Mckernan Edmonton

In 1912, McKernan and the City of Strathcona merged to become part of Edmonton. McKernan Lake, located between 110 and 114 Streets and 72 and 76 Avenues, was drained in the 1940s, delaying development of the region. The McKernan Lake Streetcar, also known as the Toonerville Trolley, ran along 76th Avenue between Calgary Trail and 116th Street from 1913 to 1947, then the trolley was replaced by the streetcar in 1948. 109 Street and 114 Street go east and west through the neighborhood, while University Avenue and 72 Avenue run north and south. The standard grid street plan was used in the northern area of McKernan, but a curved street design was used in the southern half. Between 1947 and 1953, the area's low-density residential construction was mainly finished. The neighborhood's initial walk-up apartment buildings were built in the 1950s, and further units were built in the 1960s and 1970s to provide single-detached houses. Along 76th Avenue, in the heart of McKernan, is a modest business center that also serves an LRT station. It was named for James McKernan, a wealthy merchant and early adversary of Edmonton, the City of Strathcona. The area on which the neighborhood presently stands was once part of James McKernan's original estate holdings and the family's original farmhouse, which was demolished in 1940, is now the site of McKernan Elementary-Junior High School and in 1932, the McKernan Community League was founded.
