This building was built as a residence for the Lt. Governor and it should have remained that way . they should have never built the museum there years ago . once again it shows how edmonton and alberta do not care about their past.

Interesting for those who enjoy or value Alberta history and heritage. The visit provides the visitor with rich character of historic architecture and construction while learning of important government meetings held here and significant visitors who have been hosted in meetings and dinners here.
