|Via Century Homes|
As part of Historic Calgary Week, July 27 to August 6, the Century Homes Calgary project celebrates the large number of homes built during Calgary's first building boom in 1912. Homeowners and residents were encouraged to unearth the stories behind their houses and display them on lawn signs. The participating homes are posted on the website to allow citizens to take self-guided walking tours of communities with century old homes.
I have been working on uncovering the history of our house and hope to post the story, as well as the stories of other century houses in our neighbourhood, in the coming days. There are over twenty houses within a two block radius that are participating in the celebration!
