Oldest House in Calgary - Hunt House on the Deane House Grounds

The Deane House is right by Fort Calgary and has on it's grounds at the back of the gardens is a small dilapidated structure which is the oldest house in Calgary. It is a historic structure known as the Hunt House and was built by the Hudson's Bay Company. Because it has been declared historic, no one will tear it down (no one will restore it either).

At any rate, the Deane House is now a cheery restaurant which you will enjoy visiting if you like antiques and structures of historic significance.
