Lougheed House is a Victorian mansion with flower and vegetable gardens, museum, restaurant and shop, all on the original 2.8 acres in Calgary’s Beltline community.

This sandstone prairie mansion was built in 1891 by Senator Sir James Alexander Lougheed and his wife Lady Isabella Clark Hardisty Lougheed. They raised their family here, made the home one of the finest residences in Canada's west, and provided the political and social hub of fast-growing Calgary until 1936, the year of Lady Lougheed’s passing. Between 1939 - 1978 the House was variously used as a residence for a Provincial youth employment women’s training program, a WWII offices and barracks for the Canadian Women’s Army Corps, and a Red Cross headquarters.
Today Lougheed House offers a regular exhibition program, a venue rentals program, shop and a Restaurant by Chef Judy Wood. We feature community collaborations and host programs, events, tours and learning opportunities for visitors of all ages. Lougheed House is operated by the Lougheed House Conservation Society, a non-profit charity.
This is an exciting and important time for the Lougheed House. Throughout the pandemic, we have remained an active presenter of programming, exhibitions, and events, working in partnership with community collaborators to deliver programming in the House and Gardens, and online.
We are poised to play a vital role in the recovery of the cultural sector in Calgary as we move forward with Lougheed House Re-Imagined, a new permanent exhibition that will showcase Lougheed House and Calgary history.
