Calgary's public cemetery history started in 1885 when Calgary's first Protestant cemetery was established where Shaganappi golf course is today. In 1890 Union Cemetery opened in its current location to replace the cemetery at Shaganappi Point. The Calgary Heritage Authority deemed the cemetery to be a historically significant cultural landscape that played an important part in the settlement and establishment of Calgary as a city. For more information on Union Cemetery's history or about the people that are buried there, please join one of the summer historical tours.
