Located on the western edge of Calgary, Bowness is a lovely, unique and vibrant community with a rich history. Surrounded by mature trees, the Bow River and Bowness Park, it was annexed to the city of Calgary in 1964, but still has a small town atmosphere.
The Bowness Historical Society
In the Fall of 2000, a small group of community people met informally to discuss producing a history of Bowness. Most of these people have lived in the area for many years and wanted to ensure the annals of Bowness be recorded.
A Board of Directors for the Bowness Historical Society was formed in April 2001 and was registered as a non-profit society under the Societies Act of Alberta in July, 2001. Our goal was to produce a book on the history of the community of Bowness.
Our mandate is "To promote and preserve the history of Bowness."
Please explore our site to find out more about our community and the different projects our Society is working on.
