Landmarks & Buildings Attractions & Entertainment

While Canada is a relatively young country, there are many architecturally significant buildings and landmarks for you to explore in Alberta. Our oldest building is a chapel built in 1861 by Father Albert Lacombe as the heart of the settlement of St. Albert. Here, and at many other historic sites, costumed interpreters will take you back in time. From Edmonton’s Legislative Assembly of Alberta, built of marble and local sandstone in 1907 in the Beaux Arts style popular at the time, to the Calgary Tower built 60 years later of concrete and steel, you’ll discover fascinating architecture around the province that expresses our evolving history and culture.

Inglewood bears the distinction of being Calgary's oldest neighbourhood, having been established adjacent to Fort Calgary in 1875. The founding of the community was led by Major John Stewart, Acheson Irvine and James Macleod, including the development of 9 Ave. S.E. (formerly named Atlantic Avenue), which became the city of Calgary’s first authentic main street.
