The Corner House
Imagine your vacation stay in a cozy heritage house, one of Banff’s original mining dwellings, dating back to the early 1900’s.
The Corner House, now located at the Moose Hotel & Suites, was moved from the nearby mining town of Bankhead, to downtown Banff in 1926. It lived at the corner of Banff Ave and Moose Street until 2016, when the Banff Lodging Company moved the House for restoration and then gently resettled it in its new permanent resting place, in the courtyard of the newly constructed Moose Hotel & Suites.
Since its restoration over the past year, stories telling the history of the Corner House have been coming out of the woodwork. Abundant with memories, former residents have contacted us to share stories and photos, forming a rich historical account of the House, and the families, artists, seasonal workers, and Banff characters who lived there.
