Most Calgarians probably don't stop to think about the city's bridges every time they cross over them by car, by bike or on foot. However, many of these important structures have interesting backstories or architectural designs that make them special.

The flow of history

Calgary's rivers have shaped the city's development since its inception

In 1875, members of the North West Mounted Police built a fort at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers.

Fort Calgary quickly attracted early settlers to the area, and a thriving little community started to grow – one that never strayed far from the rivers that would shape its development.

Calgary opens up

Doors Open YYC running Sept. 27-28

The Doors' frontman Jim Morrison once said "there are things known and things unknown and in-between are the doors."

That couldn't be more true for Doors Open YYC, which returns to the city Sept. 27-28.

This represents the third incarnation of the local program, which originated in Europe 25 years ago as a way of promoting civic pride.

Holding the fort

City's history lives on in Doors Open YYC site Fort Calgary

When the North West Mounted Police (NWMP) arrived at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers in 1875, they likely didn't know their small fort would eventually evolve into a metropolitan hub for more than one million residents.

Yet 139 years later, Calgary has flourished to become one of the most influential cities in Canada – all thanks to a series of small wooden structures constructed by a federal order to force whiskey traders from the area.

Fort Calgary to Undergo Major Overhaul

One of Calgary most historic sites will soon see some new additions. Thanks to a $36 million overhaul, Fort Calgary is set to undergo a yearlong three-stage renovation that will see the 107-year old Deane House returned to its former glory, along with a host of other changes.

Built in 1906, the Deane House is the only remaining North West Mounted Police (NWMP) building in Calgary. It was originally built on the west side of the site near 6th St. S.E. and was moved in 1914 to the current location of the Interpretive Centre.
