As part of Calgary’s city-wide celebration of homes constructed during Calgary’s first building boom, hundreds of home owners in Calgary have banded together to celebrate houses over 100 years old.

Century homes throughout Calgary communities will feature homemade yard signs. The signs will tell the homes’ unique stories. According to an article on Global Calgary, one of the homes featured is owned by Deanne Mudd.

She bought her house 13 years ago and turned it into a bed in breakfast called River Winde. She claims one of her first guests was a ghost and that the turn of the century home puts love in the air. She notes, “It’s just phenomenal the conversations that happen. We even had two guest meet, fall in love, and get married!”.

Another home that is on display once belonged to a constable who helped bring children to Canada after WWI.

What a neat way to celebrate Calgary’s history!
