Description : The Calgary Tower’s observation terrace is open until 11 p.m., so you can also watch one of those breathtaking Alberta sunsets and see how many office buildings leave their lights on after dark.

The town of Calgary was a thriving western settlement, centered around the community of Inglewood. The building of the transcontinenetal railroad changed the city\\\'s landscape, as the CPR built its station beside the current Palliser Hotel. In 1896 the transcontinental railroad began carrying passengers and freight to the Pacific Ocean, and the city began to grow quickly being a jumping off point for new settlers in the area. The city became a major commercial centre as agricultural goods were sold for eastern consumption, and the farmers bought manufactured goods, brought fromthe east by the railroad.

In 1894, The City of Calgary was incorporated.
