Scarboro Digital History Archives

The SCA Digital History Archives offer a portal into the Olmsted-designed community of Scarboro (Calgary, Alberta) – a passageway into material that has accumulated over more than 100 years. 

There are over 400 documents to explore, accompanied by stories and photos. Find out about the Chautauqua house that hosted parties with performers from all over the world. The story of the early Methodist Church where neighbours gathered for spiritual guidance, danced at parties and joined the first sporting clubs. The fight to keep the doors open for Sunalta Elementary School. The discovery of bones on Scarboro Avenue during excavations for city works. The first woman juvenile court judge in Alberta lived in Scarboro. The story of war heroes fallen that will always be remembered…
