About the Event

Lougheed House – The House 

Located on our original 2.8 acres, this sandstone prairie mansion was built in 1891 by Senator Sir James Alexander Lougheed and his wife Lady Isabella Clarke Hardisty Lougheed. They raised their family here, made the home one of the finest residences in Canada’s west, and provided the political and social hub of fast-growing Calgary until 1936.

The House – its original family, its later occupants, and the physical structure itself – all reflect Calgary’s evolution and are an integral part of the city’s development in the last 129 years. Our goal is to create visitor experiences that reflect the history of Lougheed House and Calgary, both the histories you know and the lesser-known stories that reflect a more diverse history of our city.

We offer preservation and interpretation of this home, the Lougheed family, and its connection to Calgary’s history.

Fieldtrip Program:

In this flagship program students can discover stories of the past through the lens of Lougheed House, a perfect introductory experience to pair with any other program to create a full day of learning. It includes a tour of the house (including gardens if weather permits) and an artifact exploration activity. Through these activities, students will learn about the different people who lived and worked in the house and what those experiences teach us about our communities in Alberta, Canada, and the world.
