Caswell Hill - Saskatoon

CASWELL HILL

 

Caswell Hill derived its name from an early homesteader, Robert Caswell, one of the Temperance Colonists of 1883.  It's an area of beautiful character homes first built around 1905, tiny war-time houses and newer houses.  Caswell Hill is a diverse community nestled between two thriving economic areas, the downtown core and 33rd Street.

The first shcool was Ashworth Holmes School which opened for classes in 1909.  It was constructed on Ashworth Holmes Hill, the present day site of Mayfair Pool.

Caswell Hill School, which is the current elementary school, was constructed in 1910 and again named for Robert W. Caswell who farmed at this location.

Bedford Road Collegiate is the public secondary school.

Saskatoon Railway Station (Canadian Pacific) is one of many Saskatoon buildings listed in the Canadian Register of Historic Places.  It is a Chateau style station which was built in 1907.  It is located on Idylwyld Drive North, which used to be called Avenue A.

Ashworth-Homes Park is 12.68 acres and derived its name from J.H. Holmes and John Ashworth.  These realtors of the early 1900's purchased most of the land now named Caswell Hill.  They subdivided the land and sold it but donated 10 acres to the City which became this park.
