This year’s Historic Calgary Week theme is “Unmasking History”

We thought we would have fun with that and present some of the less known heritage sites around the city of Calgary. These are a mix of buildings you pass by every day but decades of paint, siding, and other modifications have masked the true historical nature from being easily understood.  We’ve also included heritage where you wouldn’t expect it, homes, farms, and mansions from a century ago hidden away in Calgary’s far flung suburban communities. And lastly some buildings that are clearly from Calgary’s past, but their normal residential nature masks the stories of how they contributed to the development of early Calgary.
