A Secure Place
City of Edmonton Archives

City of Edmonton Archives,
EA-29-166

Opened in 1915, the Prince of Wales Armoury was the home of the military in Edmonton until 1977. In 1992 the renovated and retrofitted building became the home of the City of Edmonton Archives. Our notion of place is mirrored and echoed by this magnificent building. We believe the strength and security designed into the building when it opened in 1915 continues to be reflected today, but with a different meaning. Where once weapons of war were stored and men and women trained for the defense of our country, now sits documentary evidence of Edmonton's history accessible for all to use. The memory of our past resides securely within the walls of this impressive structure, destined to survive the test of time.
