A Storied History

Crescentwood was developed by real estate agent C. H. Enderton in the early 1900’s. It was one of the first neighbourhoods in the city where houses adhered to strict building guidelines, including that they be set-back a certain distance from the sidewalk. The guidelines contributed to a look and feel still evident today.

Named one of the “Best Old Family-Friendly Neighborhoods” by This Old House magazine, it is known for its stately homes and a mature tree canopy.
