Rural landscapes: under the early spring sky


Ever since this provincial park opened in 2008, it’s been a go-to favourite for photography in all seasons. This ancient structure operated in the town of Glenbow from 1909 until 1918 serving the people of Glenbow and surrounding area.
The building itself consisted of a relocated farmhouse and extension to meet the needs of a growing town. After the store closed, the building was used as a granary until the floor collapsed, after which the building was abandoned.
The building’s importance to the settlement of the area in the early twentieth century, as well as to the quarry that provided sandstone for several important buildings in Alberta, contribute to its value as a historic resource. (Source: University of Calgary)
