Dechene is named in honor of Joseph Miville Dechene who was one of the first entrepreneurs in the area. Subsequently, he became a political figure as a member of the Alberta Legislature from 1921 to 1935 as well as a member of Parliament for Athabasca until his retirement in 1958.
Years later in 1972, the City of Edmonton acquired Dechene and with civic development commencing in the 1980s, it progressed right through into the 21st century.
Approximately 89% of all the homes in the neighbourhood are beautiful single-detached homes, with the remaining 11% of the residences comprising smart duplexes and beautiful townhouses that make up a seemingly triangular shaped area.
