House in Boyle Street has Historic Connection to Edmonton’s Jewish Community

  • This house in Boyle Street may get historic designation. Alan Schietzsch

The new owner of this house in Boyle Street on 95 Street and 103 Avenue applied to have the house designated as a municipal historic resource. It belonged at one time to Lewis Goldsmith, part of Edmonton’s Jewish community in the early 20th century. As of our press time, the application was in process. If successful, it will be the first site in Edmonton with Jewish ties to be designated in such a way, according to the Jewish Federation of Edmonton.
