Welcome to Friends of Church Street!

Welcome to the website and blog for Friends of Church Street. We are an organization that seeks to promote the historical significance of 96 Street in the McCauley neighbourhood (in Edmonton, Alberta), which is commonly known as Church Street. We are not a religious group nor affiliated with any one particular church.

A couple of the things towards which we are working is encouraging the City of Edmonton to officially designate Church Street as an historical location. We are also planning a Church Street Fair for the summer of 2013.

96 Street has already been honoured with a plaque in 2010 from the Edmonton Historical Board. Church Street is also in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the largest number of churches within a few blocks (there are currently around 20).

For now, you can stay up to date with what is going on by checking out our Twitter (@ChurchStreet96) and Facebook pages. You can also reach us at friendsofchurchstreet@gmail.com.
