The name “The Barracks” pays tribute to the rich military history of the site on which the community is built. The project is located on the former Canadian Forces Base Edmonton, also known as Griesbach Barracks, named after Major General William Antrobus Griesbach. Major General Griesbach served in several significant conflicts, including the Second Boer War and both World Wars. He was also appointed as the Inspector General of the Canadian Army for all of Western Canada during WWII. In addition to his distinguished military career, Major General Griesbach also served as Mayor of Edmonton, leaving an indelible mark on the city’s history. The Barracks stands as a testament to the legacy of Major General Griesbach and the brave men and women who served at the base.
