Overview

The Jasper Park Information Centre, built in 1913-14, is one of the earliest and finest examples of rustic design in the national parks. Designed by Edmonton architect, A.M. Calderon, the Jasper Information Centre was intended to serve as a landmark and focal point for the town. Built in the rustic design tradition utilizing locally quarried stone and timber, the building set a design example for subsequent construction within the townsite. This vision of a unified architectural theme within the park was novel when first expressed by S. Maynard Rogers, Jasper's first park superintendent.
