Lougheed House

The Walrus - - A SPECIAL NATIONALTRUST FOR CANADA SUPPLEMENT -

Built in 1891 for Sen­a­tor James Alexan­der Lougheed and his wife, this sand­stone man­sion was once a so­cial hub for aris­to­crats from Cal­gary and be­yond, but it be­came a pos­ses­sion of the city dur­ing the Great De­pres­sion. Ex­ten­sive restora­tion work in the 1980s re­turned the manor and its gar­dens to their orig­i­nal splen­dour. Lougheed House of­fers a great at­mos­phere for af­ter­noon tea as well as di­verse ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams.
