Albemarle Avenue was late part Sparkhall, late part Bain, and late Highland (1895 Directory). The street names were moved around a bit while the area was settled. This is a one block long residential street running west off Logan to Hampton. It was part of the farm of Cubit Sparkhall. Farming gave way to the urban settlement that moved north from Queen Street after 1884.

The oldest house on Albemarle Avenue is number 34 and dates from 1893.
