About this Walk

Ogden is one of Calgary’s earliest communities, being built in 1912, and far from the Calgary town limits at the time.  Originally built by the CPR, Ogden’s history is closely intertwined with the railroad.  On the walk you will learn about the fascinating history of the former Ogden Hotel, the Ogden Block apartments, St. Augustine’s Anglican Church, the Scout Hall, and many of the 120 heritage homes in the area.  Join us on this captivating walk to learn about one of Calgary’s hidden historic communities!

(Please note – the walk will be broken down into two parts.  It will begin in Ogden, and will continue in Millican.  It a 2 minute drive from one area to the next, or a 13 minute walk.  Participants can get to the second venue in which ever manner they choose. Walk volunteers will help direct the participants.)

Bonny and Bob are members of the Millican Ogden Heritage Group.  Over the past two years, the group has helped create an inventory of pre-1945 heritage homes in the area, worked to increase public awareness of the community’s history, and are working to save the historic 1914 Ogden Block (“Ogden’s Chinese Laundry”) from demolition.  Both have been community residents for decades.
