Century Homes Calgary turns homeowners into historians while helping to protect the city's heritage buildings.

Usually, finding out your home has a hidden past is an unpleasant discovery, perhaps involving shoddy workmanship or a tenant who used the basement as a grow-op.

But a group of Calgarians is unearthing a different kind of history in the city’s century-old townhouses, while at the same time working to ensure the buildings are protected for the enjoyment of future generations.

“These are the kinds of homes that aren’t being built anymore. Whenever one is torn down, it’s lost for good,” explains Marilyn Williams, community coordinator manager and co-founder of the non-profit group Century Homes Calgary...

A series of stories from the Homes section of the Calgary Herald, July 13, 2012

Project celebrates century home
By Claire Young, Calgary Herald July 13, 2012


Calgary’s first building boom, in the years leading up to the start of the First World War, was led by land speculation, says a historian.

“The boundaries of the city had extended way in excess of settlement,” says Max Foran, a historian and professor at the University of Calgary.

“I read where a plot in present-day Cambrian Heights was bought in 1912 and the guy hung onto it for 40 years. When Cambrian Heights was opened up in the 1950s, the price (of the land) was exactly the same. That’s how much the price was inflated.”

People were coming to Calgary in droves and some of those homes are still standing today.

Century Homes Calgary is a project to celebrate the homes from the city’s first building boom.

“We’re trying to preserve the traditional streetscapes,” says celebration co-ordinator Marilyn Williams. “This is one way of engaging people and creating awareness.”

There were 13,011 building permits issued during the pre-First World War boom. Permits signal the intention to begin construction, not whether it was actually carried out.

Williams expects most of the homes were built, but there is no inventory of century homes in Calgary, so it’s hard to say how many are still standing.

At the very least, about 360 houses are now registered for the centennial celebration (visit centuryhomes.org)...

On the outside, hard work preserving the city's heritage homes is pleasing to the eye. Now, the inside stories revealing their human histories are finally coming into view.

Century Homes Calgary signs and banners are cropping up just in time for Historic Calgary Week, which runs July 27 to Aug. 6.

Owners and residents are sharing details and stories about their homes by posting yard signs, hoping to encourage others to learn their house's history.

"We've had quite a rush; we're inching toward the 500 mark now," said Century Homes spokeswoman Lindae Stokes...
