The New Community of Strathearn
In 1907, some areas of Strathearn were annexed to the City of Strathcona. In 1912, the City of Strathcona merged with the City of Edmonton which led to Strathearn becoming part of Edmonton. The name Strathearn is derived from Scottish Gaelic word which translates to "the valley of the Irish," or "the valley of the river Earn," The name has been in vogue since 1912 in Edmonton and possibly refers to Prince Arthur, Governor General and Duke of Strathearn and Connaught.
Major development began post World War II when the city planners took up replotting of the area. Prior to World War II, there were only a few scattered houses although large lots had been subdivided. Many of Strathearn homes for sale were constructed between 1948 and 1954.
