August 20, 2021
Concordia University of Edmonton has acquired the historic Magrath Mansion with the support of a $1.4M donation from the mansion’s previous owners. The building was built in 1912 and 1913 and features six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and ample green space. Concordia Edmonton President Tim Loreman said that the university will be able to use the building for hosting events, guest lecturers, classes, and more. “The Magrath Mansion has been an important part of so many lives,” said former owner Nellie Braaksma. “We’ve been fortunate to welcome visitors from around the world to the property to admire and appreciate it, and I am very happy that it will continue to have a presence and make an impact as part of CUE.” CBC | Edmonton Journal (AB)
