The Collections and Archives at Lougheed House are held in trust for the people of Alberta, in perpetuity.

 

Collections, Archives, and Research

We make every effort to care for our collection, consisting of items from the Lougheed family, such as Sir James’ top hat, the family Bible, family photographs, and furnishings, as well as other period pieces from 1890-1915. We also collect select objects related to the other occupancies of the Lougheed House, as well as from the restoration process, and feel that the entire House history is important. If you have artifacts, archival materials, or anecdotes about any of the House’s occupancies, or from more recent events and programs, we would love to hear from you!

Let us know if you are interested in visiting the archives or collections for research purposes. To discuss your projects, our available artifacts and materials, and to make an appointment please contact:

What’s Your Story?

As 2016, the 125th birthday of the House, approaches, we are looking for stories, memories, and photos from you! Did you know the Lougheeds, sleep in the House as a CWAC, donate blood, attend a program, get married here or have other memories of the House and its occupants? We want to get the full story of the house’s history- and that includes YOUR history. To share your history (we really want to hear from you!) please contact:
