507 9 Avenue Northeast, Calgary

Year of Construction: 1912

Our home’s centennial was last year, and we were on the Century Homes tour! We advertised ourselves as “raising kids and collies since 1983”, as we bought the house in Dec. 1983, promptly got a dog to live in it with us, and after a time…one child, a second dog, and another child, in that order! We are the second longest owners now at 29.5 years. The longest owner was a foot doctor who lived in the house for 41 years. I have researched the names of the previous owners, and before the tour this year, I would like to do a bit more of an historical search on our property, so that I can add more interesting tidbits of information. We love living in Renfrew, and loved being on the Century Homes tour, chatting to people as they went by, and in turn picking our own community tours to do during the event. We found great signs, and fascinating facts, throughout our tour!
