Legislature Building . . . Alberta's Story, The*

  • The story of Alberta's Legislature Building, told with the aid of Henry, the phantom groundskeeper. Finished in 1912 on the site of Fort Edmonton, a former fur trading post, the Capitol Building was designed in a simplified beaux-arts style. Together with other improvements, the grounds on the north side of the building were upgraded in 1974, doing away with the roads, parking lots and urban clutter. They were replaced with a large plaza featuring a reflecting pool and fountains. Underground is a walkway connecting the legislature with other government buildings.
