Leduc Real Estate
In 1889, Robert Taylor Telford settled on a piece of land near a scenic lake. This land would become the cornerstone of the new town. During the early years, Robert Telford was the first postmaster, first general merchant and first justice of the peace in the settlement that had become informally known as Telford. He also later served the community as mayor and as Leduc’s first member of the Legislative Assembly.
In 1886 a government telegraph office was set up by Mr. McKinely, an area settler. Needing a name for the place, he said, "We shall name it after the first person who comes in," and in through the door came Father Hippolyte Leduc.
In 1899, Minister of the Interior Edgar Dewdney, formerly Lieutenant Governor of the Northwest Territories, decreed that the settlement of Telford should be renamed 'Leduc' in honour of the noted Roman Catholic missionary, Father Leduc, who had served the area since 1867.
The municipality of Leduc was officially incorporated as the Village of Leduc on December 15, 1899, attained town status on December 15, 1906 and eventually became the City of Leduc on September 1, 1983.
Discovery of oil: a new era for Alberta
Leduc continued to grow and prosper as a major stopping point between Edmonton and Calgary. However, it wasn't until February 13, 1947, when oil was first discovered at Leduc No. 1, that the new era was ushered in. This discovery was the beginning of a massive economic revolution for Leduc and Alberta. Alberta changed, from a predominately rural and agricultural province to an urban economy dominated by the oil and gas industry.
