Edmonton's north-south urban development in the 1970s: Mill Woods & Castledowns

Speaker Event
Hosted By
Edmonton & District Historical Society

Event Details

Speakers: Christina Hardie & Tim O'Grady

It has been nearly 50 years since planning began on the subdivisions of Mill Woods and Castle Downs. More than just suburban sprawl, these communities have complex stories and layers of history that are only beginning to be appreciated. Presenters Tim O'Grady and Christina Hardie are among the new generation of history lovers and heritage advocates in Edmonton.
Christina, born and raised in Mill Woods, is President of the Edmonton Regional Heritage Fair and the former head of John Walter Museum. Her interest is in the social history of Mill Woods and is passionate about childhood experiences and the influence of liminal spaces on community.
Tim, who has called Castle Downs home since moving to Edmonton ten years ago, is a director of the Edmonton and District Historical Society, and an archivist with the City of Edmonton. Tim is particularly interested in how this relatively new community's history can be seen through the natural and built environment.
