Landmarks & Buildings Attractions & Entertainment

There’s no denying Albertans are good at building new things. Take a look the glittering downtowns of the big cities. The structures from the past tell stories of Alberta’s booms and busts. • Now you know: Sandstone was the building material of choice a century ago. Check it out in the Beaux Arts style provincial Legislature Building in Edmonton and throughout Calgary’s downtown. • Ask the pros: The Historical Society of Alberta makes sure nobody forgets the good old days and the stories behind heritage buildings. Check out their Alberta playlist, especially on Heritage Day in August.

Big Head

Canmore, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

When you wander through the town of Canmore, you will inevitably stumble upon a head-scratching example of public art. Big Head is a sculpture created by the artist Al Henderson and was inspired by Canmore’s name, which was taken from a small Scottish town and means “great head” or “chief” in the Gaelic language. The sculpture has become a local landmark and tourist sight, and occasionally gets dressed up for town festivities.
