Lougheed house is a bit hard to find but makes for an interesting visit. This is the home of the senator Lougheed, important in Alberta's early history. The house is well preserved and has innovations (for the time) like the heating system. The historic home can be booked for special events and occasions.

It is a painstakingly restored version of the original 3 storey homestead (narrow stairs! but has elevator access) and even has converted one of the staterooms into a working restaurant! Audio tour using handheld device available for price of admission but plenty of information placards on display if reading is your thing! The curator and staff are incredibly knowledgeable so...

We were planning a day at Drumheller when we saw that Lougheed House was featuring an exhibit on the clothing from the 20's. If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, I would highly recommend the visit. It is a small distraction from the day, but the staff and curator have organized a great display of local clothes and explanations... More

I visited Lougheed House during the 2015 Calgary Stampede and was really impressed! Tucked away in downtown Calgary, anyone who is a fan of shows like Downtown Abbey will love the house. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and the free audio guide was easy to use along with being jam packed full of great information. The house has a little... More

This 1880's Queen Anne house, built by a prominent Canadian Senator rivals any of the period in North America, it has been wonderfully restored and should not be missed during a trip to Calgary.

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.
