1913 Jasper Park Information Centre Ink Pen Drawing By Aeris Osborne

2022 Alberta Artist-In-Residence Project- 1913 Jasper Park Information Center Ink Pen Sketch was my 2nd sketch of the series before painting on canvas.


Jasper Park Information Centre National Historic Site of Canada is a picturesque fieldstone residence (now information centre) set within a treed park within the Jasper townsite. Its picturesque profile, with steeply pitched roof and varied gables and porches, and its use of natural materials such as rough fieldstone, log and wood, captures the rustic aesthetic which became symbolic of early architecture within Canada’s national parks.

This building is one of the finest and most influential examples of rustic architecture in Canada’s national parks. Designed by A.M. Calderon and completed in 1914, it introduced a building tradition based on the use of local construction materials, in this case cobblestone and timber. The facility originally housed park administration offices, a museum, and living quarters for the park superintendent. As the first major building in the townsite, it helped to define the character of Jasper’s early development and provided a conspicuous landmark that greeted park visitors upon their arrival by train.

The heritage value of Jasper Park Information Centre lies in its expression of the rustic design tradition that came to symbolize Canada’s national parks. Designed by Edmonton architect A.M. Calderon, Jasper Park Information Centre was built in 1913-1914 as a landmark. The park’s first superintendent, S. Maynard Rogers, considered it an example of the unified architectural theme he envisioned for the construction of the new Jasper townsite. Built as a mixed residence and administrative space, it is now used as an information centre for the park.
