This place is part of the history in Calgary. It is worth visiting it if you want to learn about the past. You need to reserve a head of time for eating at the restaurant.

We then took a guided tour and found out so Nancy interesting things about the Lougheeds. I had heard of this building but had never been there before. We enjoyed it... More

This house is a treasure. Owned by a local attorney and later politician, it is a masterpiece of carved mahogany and stained glass windows. Currently there is a bonus, a wedding gown exhibition. Self guided, audio, or guided tours are offered, I chose the audio. Very helpful but I was lucky and ran into an off duty tour guide and... More

Former home of Calgary's most important historical family; lovely restoration of interior with beautiful gardens surrounding. The exhibits are OK - I went to see wedding dresses, there were not many but the ones they had were nice to look at. The history of the house is fascinating but they could do a better job of filling in a lot... More

This historic site is also a charming restaurant. The house is surrounded by gardens maintained by volunteers. Parking can be a headache because the Beltline district has grown up around it, but there is some parking on site. Elevators make this heritage house wheelchair friendly.

Beautiful heritage house in downtown Calgary but not a lot in there. They have a display on wedding dresses currently and have opened the sitting room furnished but there's a lot of empty space. Nice place for lunch and beautiful' gardens

We had brunch here and the meal and service were pretty good. There is a great deal of history here and you can take a tour of the house after brunch.
