Lougheed House in Calgary was originally home to Senator James Alexander Lougheed, his wife, children and staff. Built in 1891, this grand sandstone prairie mansion contains materials and interior furnishings that reflected the wealth and prestige of the Lougheeds. Lougheed House was designated a National Historic Site in 1992, and has been faithfully restored to its Victorian and Edwardian splendour. The historic gardens on the estate have been beautifully recreated and are now designed, planted and landscaped to a different theme each year. Today, Lougheed House is yours to discover and enjoy.
