Westmount Real Estate Listings and Information
In 1878, Malcolm Groat selected his homestead on the land that is now the Westmount neighbourhood. Groat was a Hudson Bay Company employee and an early Edmonton settler who remained one of Edmonton’s leading citizens through the turn of the century. Groat’s square mile of land was wisely selected along the North Saskatchewan River immediately west of the area that became the Hudson Bay Reserve. The Groat homestead was annexed to the City of Edmonton in two stages, first in 1904 and then in 1910. Groat gradually sold his land to developers as the demand for residential lots heated up. Due to its proximity to downtown Edmonton Westmount developed early, in spite of the general oversupply of residential lots in Edmonton.
