A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE C.C. SNOWDON

ORIGINALLY BUILT IN 1911, THE HISTORIC C.C. SNOWDON BUILDING WAS USED FOR THE PRODUCTION OF OILS, GREASE AND PAINTS FOR ONE OF THE FIRST OIL REFINING BUSINESSES IN WESTERN CANADA.  CAMPBELL CAMILLUS SNOWDON-BORN IN MONTREAL-OWNED THE BUILDING AND COMPANY. THE FACTORY WAS IN OPERATION UP UNTIL 1931, AND IN 1970 THE SNOWDON FAMILY SOLD THE BUSINESS. SINCE THEN THE SNOWDON BUILDING HAS BEEN HOME TO SEVERAL BUSINESSES, SEEN RENOVATIONS, A DISASTROUS FIRE AND SPENT A GREAT DEAL OF TIME VACANT. 

CHRC AT THE SNOWDON BUILDING

CALGARY HERITAGE ROASTING CO. COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD TO CALL THE SNOWDON HOME. WE POURED BLOOD, SWEAT, AND A FEW ACCIDENTAL SPILT BEERS INTO THE RESTORATION OF THIS HISTORIC BUILDING, DOING OUR VERY BEST TO HONOUR THE ORIGINAL BEAUTY OF THIS SPACE. WE HOPE THAT YOU ALWAYS FEEL AT HOME WITH US HERE.


AT CALGARY HERITAGE ROASTING CO. YOU WILL FIND A WARM AND INVITING SPACE, WITH ORIGINAL HARDWOOD AND EXPOSED BRICK WALL. OUR SPACE IS BUILT ALMOST ENTIRELY OUT OF RECLAIMED WOOD FROM THE SNOWDON ITSELF. WE SPENT NIGHTS UPON NIGHTS HAND SCRAPPING THE ORIGINAL HARDWOOD FLOORS UPSTAIRS, WHICH HAD SEEN YEARS OF HARDSHIPS, TO RESTORE IT TO ITS ORIGINAL GLORY!  AND OUR TABLES ARE BUILT FROM THE 1911 BASEMENT FLOORING. OUR ROASTERY IS BASED IN THE C.C. SNOWDON. ROASTS HAPPEN ALMOST EVERYDAY, RIGHT INSIDE THE COFFEE SHOP, SO YOU'RE ALWAYS WELCOME TO COME AND SEE HOW IT'S DONE!
