Significance to Calgary

Known well by many Calgarians as Currie Barracks or CFB Calgary, the base dates back to the 1930’s. Today, the plans for Currie reflect this history while creating a new mixed-use community intended to meet the evolving needs of Calgarians. 

The heart of the guided tour is the Stables Building. Built in 1936 by the Canadian armed forces, the K-Shaped building was originally built to house the ‘B’ Squadron of the Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadian) regiment.

In addition, the Stables Building and the rest of initial Currie Barracks construction is also significant for its association with the largest public works program in Alberta during the Great Depression.

The guided tour starts at the Stables Building and will move towards Parade Square. Athlone Hall and the Pellat Building are stops along the tour. All stops on the tour are Provincial designated heritage spaces.
