About this collection

The Century Homes Calgary project was a grassroots initiative celebrating houses built during Calgary’s first building boom in 1912. This project was led by the Calgary Heritage Initiative along with the participation of Calgary Public Library, Federation of Calgary Communities, Calgary Heritage Authority, Cliff Bungalow–Mission Community Association and Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association. Around 508 homeowners signed up to research their homes, and create yard signs with historical information to display during Historic Calgary Week.
