Boyle Street Real Estate Listings and Information
Boyle Street is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Edmonton. Most of the rectangular blocks and straight streets of Boyle Street were recorded on a map of the newly created town of Edmonton in 1892. The Edmonton Settlement had been originally subdivided on the basis of townships and river lots. The grid pattern of streets in Boyle Street conforms to the exterior boundaries of several river lots and this accounts for their different alignments. The Hudson’s Bay Company Reserve, situated directly north of Fort Edmonton, forced the town to spread eastward and away from the fort. Thus the hub of Edmonton’s early commercial district was located to the east of the present downtown. The portions of Jasper Avenue and 97 Street that bound Boyle Street were the focus of much commerce.
