Facility:Rutherford House
Description:Rutherford House Provincial Historic Site is the home of the first Premier of Alberta, Alexander Cameron Rutherford. In 1911, A.C. Rutherford and his wife Mattie moved into this beautiful brick mansion near the university campus. The family entertained friends, relatives and influential Edmontonians for more than a generation. Today, this restored and furnished post Edwardian home maintains the Rutherford tradition of hospitality and offers visitors a glimpse into the past with costumed interpreters, guided tours and special events.

Costumed interpreters recreate daily household activities, reenact important events in Rutherford's life and lead guided tours of his home.

The Friends of Rutherford House provide visitors with a taste of the past in the Arbour Restaurant, and their giftshop offers keepsakes reminiscent of Edwardian times.
