Rooted in Calgary’s early history, Erlton was founded in the early 1900s. What was once the outskirts of the city has now grown to become a vibrant inner city neighbourhood with plenty of parks and nearby businesses to make this what many consider one of the best-kept secrets in Calgary.

In 2001, the ECA, with financial support from the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation enlisted historian David Mittelstadt to prepare a book chronicling the history of the Erlton area.
