Southeast Calgary

Ollerenshaw Heritage Ranch
in Mahogany

The Ollerenshaw Ranch, located on Section 23, was purchased by the family patriarch in 1958 and represents the most recent family farming and ranching operation, which remained active until 2014. Over the years, the Ollerenshaw family has earned a well-deserved reputation for innovation, sustainability, entrepreneurialism, philanthropy and commitment to Alberta’s agricultural community. The family’s history and deep agricultural roots in southeast Calgary inspired the preservation and redevelopment of this historic ranch site within Mahogany. The ranch is uniquely located at the heart of a joint-use site shared by two future elementary schools. The vision for the Ollerenshaw Heritage Ranch site is to serve as a centre for agricultural interpretation and education, community gardens and a range of other innovative intergenerational and philanthropic purposes. Section23 also has plans to develop a seniors’ residence on a parcel adjacent to the Ollerenshaw Heritage Ranch site in Mahogany.
