Homesteader Real Estate Listings and Information
Homesteader is one of three neighbourhoods within the Hermitage plan area. In 1875, an Anglican minister, Canon William Newton, arrived in the Edmonton settlement and built his first church, a home and a hospital in an area he called the Hermitage. The Hermitage was located about 10 kilometres from Fort Edmonton on the south side of a ravine overlooking the North Saskatchewan River to the east. Reverend Newton’s home remained there for more than 25 years. For many years after, the Hermitage remained an agricultural area. During that time, the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway line formalized the area’s south boundary along the railroad right-of-way.
