Ogden Community Background

Ogden-Millican-LogoMillican-Ogden is one of the oldest communities in Calgary.  It is named after the Millican family, homesteaders who settled in the area in the early 1900s, and I.G. Ogden, the former Vice-president of the Canadian Pacific Railway. With the construction of the Ogden Shops in 1912-1913 the area gained the distinction of being the only CPR repair shop between Winnipeg and Vancouver. Millican-Ogden is located in the SE, and, due to its long history, is home to several vintage homes including the historic Ogden Hotel. The area also contains numerous restaurants and strip malls.  In addition, there is plenty of open space in the area, particularly in the Bow River Valley, as well as numerous parks. The community’s outdoor pool and the Jack Setter’s Arena offer recreation opportunities to residents. There are also both public and separate schools in the area.
