History

Langdon has a rich western prairie heritage dating back to the mid 1880’s when the Canadian Pacific Railway moved across the prairies serving the needs of the families who flocked to the area for the rich ranch and farm land. A station was established to service the large prairie east of Calgary and was the heart of the community. The surname of the contractor who built the rail line was Langdon and as was the custom at this time, the station was named after him.

By 1892, one store and four houses were built. A telegraph office was constructed in 1899. During the early 1900’s, Langdon underwent rapid growth with a population around 800 persons. Development of the community continued with the construction of a bank, general and hardware store, hotel, drug store, newspaper and lawyer’s office. Langdon was incorporated as a village in 1908. The bustle of activity in the early industrious years of the 1920’s brought the population to approximately 2000 residents.

Community Spirit was at the heart of day to day life. Streets in Langdon today are aptly named in honour of the homesteading families that gave life to Langdon over a century ago, a way of having history live on. An upside down horseshoe has always been Langdon’s logo and the town was recognized as “The Good Luck Town”.
