This humble utilitarian bungalow was built in 1906 by CPR carpenter Archibald Campbell. It was part of boom of smaller houses built in the early years to accommodate the influx of workers to Calgary. They were easy to build and inexpensive.
This house was built adjacent to the Grand Trunk Railway, which is now the cycle path at the rear of the house.
