An historical gem in the heart of downtown Calgary

A bit off the main path, this house is a must visit and full of early history of Calgary pioneers. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. A step back in time to see how... read more

We had our wedding here a couple of weeks ago. We picked the location because of ease of access and the beauty of the location, although sad to say I won't be using them again. Cathy - the Event Manager - is abnormally hard to get a hold of (I would have to send two, maybe three emails before getting... More

We have admired the Lougheed House from the outside for years. On a Sunday afternoon we decided to step inside. It is such a treat. So well presented, so interesting - a real gem.

This place was absolutely gorgeous! I went when it was nice and quiet so I had lots of space but had strapped myself for time. I will definitely be going back on a day when I am less busy. The windows are gorgeous and the audio tour along with the young lady at the front desk made it a great... More

The house and the lovely young lady who greeted us were both charming! The history of the family and the house was very enlightening. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit! It was very inexpensive, and parking was free . Will definitely visit again!

I grew up in Calgary and was always fascinated by this house. I remember it has the Red Cross House for many years. The restoration is fascinating, especially since they have kept bits of the old house so you can see what they were dealing with. I know the Society has had setbacks with vandalism and break-ins so it was... More

A bit off the main path, this house is a must visit and full of early history of Calgary pioneers. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. A step back in time to see how the wealthy lived in the old days. The architecture is amazing and the house is much larger than it looks from the outside.

I fell in love with this as our wedding venue and Cathy was such a sweetheart. But we didn't find out how terribly they handle wedding planning here until after we had already put our non refundable payment down. I was laughed at for wanting a cake cutting song. Told it was stupid and she had never heard of such... More

We just celebrated Sugarfoot Anderson's 95th birthday at the Lougheed House in Calgary, with 55 close friends and family, many of whom had not been in the "House" before. It is a beautfully restored old mansion that glowed with the evening light, creating a wonderful ambience and embraced the fun we had. The whole house was available to us, and... More

I was there for lunch twice in the summer, once for lunch, once for brunch. The food was very good both times and I really enjoyed the historical building and gardens. There is a quaint little gift shop in the basement with unique items hand selected by the gift shop manager.

It was snowing the day we went and the house looked really lovely. Tim, the receptionist was very knowledgeable and told us lots of stories about the house. There isn't a huge amount of furniture in it but you could see how lovely it must have been. there was a nice feeling inside, a family home. There are gardens which... More
