Overview
More
Lougheed House is a National & Provincial Historic site, Museum and gardens located in Calgary's Beltline community. This 14,000 sq.ft sandstone mansion was built in 1891 by Senator James Lougheed and his wife Lady Isabella Lougheed. Completely restored, today it is the Beltline community's hub of cultural happenings and programs offering preservation and interpretation of this home, the Lougheed family and early Calgary. We also offer spectacular flower and vegetable gardens (free), weddings and events, and indoors (with paid admission) we offer self-guided and audio tours, historic interpreters (if booked in advance) and year round revolving exhibits, concerts and happenings produced with our cultural collaborators.

The guided tour is recommended, to learn a little bit more about the house, the inhabitants over the years, and their impact to the community. The restaurant inside the house is wonderful, and the staff were all fabulous.

Great job in preserving the history of the house . Took the self guided tour and the audio recording provided detailed information on the house and the residents. We also had brunch in the restaurant - the food, ambiance and service were superb.
