The Northwest Mounted Police (NWMP) Barracks in Canmore also ended up on a canvas this fall – it’s about time! I enjoy bringing historic buildings and mountains together since such interesting stories reflect on the landscapes that attracted our early people to live among them.
The Barracks, built in 1893, served until 1929 as the lodgings, office and jail for the police officers in Canmore. It is the oldest NWMP building in western Canada and still stands on its original site. In the background are the famed “Three Sisters” that identify this place.
