1316 15 Street Northwest, Calgary

Didn’t find a building permit for this house but the assessment card dates it at 1910. I don’t think this is correct. My research shows nothing was built in the area before 1912. The assessment card shows it has two stories, nine rooms and eight plumbing fixtures. There is a concrete foundation and a full basement with a concrete floor. The exterior is shingled. There are fir and maple floors with fir trim. There is hot air heat, one fireplace and two chimneys. The house has porches and bays.

Henderson’s Directories shows the house was occupied in 1913 by Charles A. Maus, a builder. He lived in the house about 4 years and then the Harris family came and stayed until about 1922. Mr. Albert C. Harris was the provincial manager of Soverign Life.

In 1923 and 1924 the house was occupied by the Joseph J. White family. Mr White was part of the firm, Bennett and White Construction.

From 1925 until about 1958 the Howard B. Grant’s, retired farmers, lived in the house.
