Mayfield Real Estate History
Mayfield is situated in west-central Edmonton, north of 107 Avenue and west of Grovenor. The bulk of residential construction within Mayfield took place in the 1950s and 1960s and continued slowly into the early 1980s along with a school and park site. Detached houses, predominately bungalows, are oriented around the school and park site. The Mayfield street pattern is a good example of the modified grid pattern that became popular after World War II. While the majority of housing units are detached houses, Mayfield also offers several multi-family condominiums and is surrounded by industrial uses.
The name was chosen through a naming contest in 1954. Mayfield was named in honour of Wilfrid R. May, a civilian aviation pioneer and World War I fighter pilot who founded Edmonton’s first air service in 1919 and established our northern Alberta Aero Club in 1928. He was inducted into Canadas aviation hall of fame in 1973. This part of west-central Edmonton is best known for the Mayfield Dinner Theatre
