Banff, AB – Take a look inside some of Banff’s most historic places during the 2013 Doors Open Banff. The annual event allows residents and visitors to tour through homes, historic buildings, and cabins that are not normally open to the public.
This year 25 locations will open their doors August 11 from 1-4 p.m., welcoming visitors inside to take a peek at Banff’s rich history. New to Doors Open Banff this year is the Crosby home, known as Abegweit. Closed to the public for decades, it recently underwent a major rejuvenation to preserve the home built in 1913 by Louis and Gertrude Crosby.
For a full listing of homes and buildings participating in Doors Open Banff, download a copy of the 2013 brochure at Banff.ca/doorsopen or from whyte.org/programs. Maps are also available from the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies (111 Bear Street) and at Doors Open Banff information booths the day of the event, located in the Bison Courtyard (211 Bear Street) and beside the Banff Park Museum (the corner of Banff Avenue and Buffalo Street). Participation in Doors Open Banff is free, however museum admissions apply.
