McKernan Real Estate

James McKernan was a noted businessman in the City of Strathcona, Alberta, Canada and this south west Edmonton neighbourhood is his namesake. Strathcona was annexed to Edmonton in 1912 but the majority of residential construction did not happen until just after World War II.

Today McKernan is a mixture of duplexes and single family homes with a high percentage of renters. It also shares a small commercial area with its neighbour, Belgravia. Located at 76th Avenue and 115th Street, the strip mall occupies three lots and two buildings, one of which was built in 1948. It originally had two commercial spaces on the mail level and three apartments above. One of the commercial bays was the long time home of Rogers’ drug store, which operated in this location until 1976. The family maintained a home in one of the upstairs apartments.

It was then sold to Monco Holdings and to this day has been home to several businesses including the McPhee Workshop (crafts and sewing) and a used bookstore, Belgravia Books and Treasures. One of the empty lots has been converted to a park displaying sculptures and a prairie garden, contributing to the area’s appeal.
