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.
