Historic Hudson's Bay Company

A year after the North West Mounted Police created a settlement at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers and named it Calgary in 1875, the Hudson's Bay Company set up shop and has been here ever since.

The history of the Hudson's Bay extends well before those first buildings were constructed in Calgary. In May of 1670, Prince Rupert, cousin of King Charles II granted the lands of the Hudson Bay watershed to a "Company of Adventurers" including Pierre-Esprit Radisson and Medard Chouart, Sieur des Groseilliers.

Mewata Armory

Nestled beside Shaw Millennium Park along the new West LRT line, the Mewata Armoury and Drill Hall is a one-of-a-kind building in Calgary's inner city.

The word "Mewata" is said to be derived from the Cree word for 'O be joyful' or 'to be happy'. With construction beginning 1915 and a completion date of 1918, the structure was the brainchild of architect Thomas W. Fuller.

Calgary is not really known for its old architecture, but in some homes, it appears residents of old just won't leave.

While in the scheme of things Calgary is a fairly young city, it has no shortage of haunted sightings. At Heritage Park alone, nearly all of the buildings have been relocated to the park, and in a lot of them, their former residents have stayed on.

Livingston Cabin

Depending on who you talk to, the answer to the question of "Who is Calgary's first resident?" could produce a few different names. However the most popular answer is settler Sam Livingston.

Irish-born Sam Livingston left his home country at the age of 16 for California, drawn by the 1849 Gold Rush. The Irish youngster didn't make much of his prospecting years as far as gold but he did make many friends and many treks throughout North America.
