LIVE IN NORTH EAST EDMONTON
The neighborhood of McLeod was named after Murdoch McLeod, a Scottish employee of the Hudson’s Bay Company who settled in the Belmont area in 1879. Two of his sons later died under mysterious circumstances searching for gold in British Columbia’s “Dead Man’s Valley”. The third recovered their headless skeletons and brought their killer to justice. TRUE STORY! How cool is that?
McLeod is bounded on the south by 144 Avenue, on the north by 153 Avenue, on the east by 58 Street and on the west by 66 Street. It is very well served educationally with four schools in the area. One public and one Catholic elementary, and one public and one Catholic junior high.
As one of the older neighborhoods in Edmonton’s north side, development began in the 1960s and was largely complete by the end of the 1970s. Now 77% of units constructed predate 1980. McLeod is almost entirely made up of single-detached homes, which is unusual for an older neighborhood. It is also 95% owner-occupied which means older residents on average. Almost 40% of residents are over 50, and 74% of residents are classified as “non-movers” and have been living in McLeod for quite some time.
