About
Lougheed House is a National & Provincial Historic site, Museum and gardens located in Calgary's Beltline community. This 14,000 sq.ft sandstone mansion was built in 1891 by Senator James Lougheed and his wife Lady Isabella Lougheed. Completely restored, today it is the Beltline community's hub of cultural happenings and programs offering preservation and interpretation of this home, the Lougheed family and early Calgary. We also offer spectacular flower and vegetable gardens (free), weddings and events, and indoors (with paid admission) we offer self-guided and audio tours, historic interpreters (if booked in advance) and year round revolving exhibits, concerts and happenings produced with our cultural collaborators.

Took my mom here for Mothers Day afternoon tea. Too early for the gardens but we did get a free tour of the house with our purchase of the Tea. Lots of history, such a beautiful old home. The Tea was OK. Not much selection for tea but found some we liked. The service was quite slow but friendly.

Too early in the season to admire the garden. The house is an excellent example of what the wealthy of the day enjoyed in Calgary 100 plus years ago. (I was mentally comparing it to Craigdorrach castle in Victoria BC which, to be frank, was more impressive). The house has lots of history around this important Alberta family and is an important legacy in the province

We love seeing old homes. They do not do a very good job of explaining the history of this house. It was a self guided tour with things to take a picture of in each room to talk about it.

The Lougheed House was not far from Downtown Calgary. It cost me in Canadian monies, eight dollars and fifty cents (CA $8.50) to conduct my own tour. I spent about forty (40) minutes to see the three (3) house levels and the exterior gardens. The gardens were very well-maintained with a number of vegetables and other scenic plants. The house had a variety of different rooms and exhibits. There were some stairs, an elevator, and some bathrooms. There was a parking lot and I also saw street parking. The staff was friendly, and there was a gift shop available.

As a national and provincial historic site you would think one level of government would come up the sensible idea of having the interior open seven days a week as an interesting tourist attraction in Calgary. There is some exterior signage about the original design of the building and later renovations. The Beaulieu Gardens did not strike me as being more than marginally impressive on the floral front.

My son's wedding reception was held here - fabulous showplace of Alberta History. Open to the public on occasion - but rentable fro various functions. The grounds are meticulously maintained.

Guided tours restarted on July 2021, and was so happy to visit this amazing history building. Our tour guide was amazing, and we learnt so much from it starting from backgrounds of Lougheed and Hardisty families to history of Calgary and Stephen avenue to architectural specialties of Lougheed house. Strongly recommend
