About Lougheed House

Lougheed House was built in 1891 and is a Provincial and National Historic Site. Located in Calgary’s greater downtown amid acres of heritage gardens and green space, Lougheed House is an accredited museum, significant Calgary landmark, and vibrant community gathering space. It features temporary and permanent exhibits, hosts events, tours, and learning opportunities for visitors of all ages as well as a restaurant, gift shop, and private event space.

Lougheed House is operated by the Lougheed House Conservation Society, a group of volunteers dedicated to preserving and operating Lougheed House as a public resource to engage community in meaningful ways, and to share and honour diverse histories.

The site and gardens are owned by the Government of Alberta and City of Calgary, and the Society has a formal partnership with Métis Nation of Alberta, in recognition of the Métis heritage of the house.

The Society is seeking enthusiastic and action-oriented individuals from the Calgary area to join our board of directors. Preference will be given to candidates who have a demonstrated interest in local history/museums, strong connections in the Calgary community, and bring skills and experience in government relations, finance. Given the Métis heritage of Isabella’s legacy, we are also looking for candidates who are active participants in the Métis community in Calgary.

The board of directors is a governance board that meets 6 – 7 times a year with concurrent committee work. Board members are expected to participate in at least one committee, come to meetings prepared, engage productively in respectful discussion and decision-making, and champion Lougheed House in the community. Board members are appointed for 3-year terms and may serve for a maximum of 6 years.
