AAA Editor Notes
Lougheed House is at 707 13th Ave. S.W. Built in 1891, this 14,000 square-foot sandstone prairie mansion was built by cabinet minister and Senator James Alexander Lougheed and his wife Isabella Clarke Hardisty Lougheed. They raised their family here, made the opulent Victorian mansion one of the finest residences in Alberta, and provided the political and social hub of fast-growing Calgary until 1936. Today the house offers interpretive exhibits detailing the history of the house, the family and the connection to Calgary’s history.

The lovely 1.1-hectare (2.8-acre) estate includes the formal Beaulieu Gardens featuring flower and vegetable gardens. Guided tours by historical interpreters as well as self-guiding audio tours are available. Special programs and exhibits are offered throughout the year.

Guided tours are available. Food is available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
