Lougheed House National & Provincial Historic Site

Created by Lougheed House National and Provincial Historic Site on April 14th 2020, 4:40:44 am.
Description

Located on the original 2.8-acre site, this 14,000 square-foot sandstone prairie mansion was built in 1891 by Senator Sir James Alexander Lougheed and his wife Lady Isabella Clark Lougheed (née Hardisty). They raised their family here, made the home one of the finest residences in Canada's west, and it became a political and social hub of fast-growing Calgary until 1936. As a historic site and museum now open to the public year-round, Lougheed House continues to be a "home for Calgary's stories".
