Oliver Real Estate Listings and Information
An older inner city neighbourhood, Oliver is located immediately west of downtown. By the standards of 100 years ago, the area was known as Edmonton’s “West End”. It was only during the 1950s that the area was named after pioneer citizen Frank Oliver. By this time it could hardly be called the “West End” with Edmonton’s boundaries extending well beyond Oliver’s western boundary, 124 Street. Development in Oliver began during the 1880s when several institutional structures were built. The General Hospital and the original Misericordia Hospital were joined by numerous churches, several schools and a cloister. Residential development was firmly in place prior to World War I with infill being complete by the 1930s.
