This building should have remained as the lt. govenerns residence not change into a meeting room for government. Once again edmonton, & Alberta fails at holding on to their history.

Interesting for those who enjoy or value Alberta history and heritage. The visit provides the visitor with rich character of historic architecture and construction while learning of important government meetings held here and significant visitors who have been hosted in meetings and dinners here.
