Where did the name come from for the "Graydon Hill" neighbourhood?

The City of Edmonton's NAMING COMMITTEE approves names for municipal facilities, new neighbourhoods, parks and roads. This involves input from both City administration and citizens. The Naming Committee has seven members appointed by City Council; including six citizens at large, and one representative from the Edmonton Historical Board.  

Rosetta Graydon was the driving force behind the establishment of humane societies in Alberta.  The new SW neighbourhood on Ellerslie Road between 141 st and 127 st bears her name for all of her many accomplishments.  Please read more here.
