Calgary Courthouses

by Christine L Hayes - 0 Comment(s)


This is Calgary's first courthouse, built in 1888-1889. Before this building was constructed, court was held in an immigration shed. When a second courthouse was built in 1915, this building served as the NWMP facilities and jail. The building was demolished in 1958 to make way for Calgary's third courthouse, the Court of Queen's Bench, completed in 1962.
