Although the neighbourhood was undeveloped until the 1950s this area was known as Rosslyn since the early 1900s. The origin of the name is not known precisely, but it is possible that the neighbourhood was named after Rosslyn Chapel which is located in Scotland. In the heat of a pre-World War I landboom, a large parcel of land that included Rosslyn was annexed to Edmonton. Shortly thereafter, the boom came to an end and Rosslyn lay undeveloped for several decades.
