A Glebe History Intro
Since the first homestead was built in the Glebe in 1832, many events in Canadian history have played out here. The Ottawa Glebe grew out of a Clergy Reserve granted to St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in 1837. By the 1890s it was a streetcar suburb two miles south of Parliament Hill. Today, the Glebe has a unique village character in the heart of the Nation's Capital. The history of Canada is the history of its communities.
