Ramsay Century Homes Walking Tour

June 18th, 2012

Angie Maeots sends the following info about the Ramsay Heritage walking tour:

Ramsay “Century Homes Calgary” Tour

Rain or shine, come and join Ramsay Heritage for a “walking tour” of the Century Homes within the community!

The Century Homes that are signed up will post a yard sign sharing details on their home, that may include:

  • Architectural
  • Residential
  • Events
  • Photos
  • Stories

Come out and explore these heritage homes, (we will not be going inside any of the homes,) mingle with fellow community residents, learn and share Ramsay’s unique heritage.

Because it is a walking tour, participants will be given a map of the Century Homes locations, to be able to break from the tour and continue it later, or on their own time, if preferred.

We will be gathering in front of the Ramsay Community Association, 1136 8 St SE. Sunday, July 29th, at 2:00 pm. The tour is scheduled to go until 4:30pm

Do you have special stories about the people, places, events and eras that helped shaped your neighbourhood?

What are the places you value?  The historic buildings, streets, green spaces you think are important to Ramsay’s identity and character?

City of Calgary Heritage Planning has engaged a consultant to develop a Community Context Paper and a Historic Places of Interest List for Ramsay.

We want to know which places you would like to see included in this project.

If you are interested in hearing more about the project or want to provide input, please join us at the Open House.

There will be time for informal discussion and a presentation on the project to date.

Hope you can join us for snacks, refreshments and a conversation about your community history!
