Delburne Alberta Government Telephones Exchange Building

One of Alberta’s most recently designated historic resources is the Delburne Alberta Telephones Exchange Building. Designated in January as a Municipal Historic Resource by the Village of Delburne, it has recently been listed on the Alberta Register of Historic Places.

Although now a residence, the building once housed the switching equipment that first connected the village and the surrounding area to the long-distance telephone network. To read more about the heritage value of this building take a look at the statement of significance on the Alberta Register of Historic Places.

Municipal Heritage Services staff helped the Village of Delburne finalize the documentation needed to designate and then list the site on the Alberta Register of Historic Places. If you want to learn more about identifying, evaluating and protecting local heritage resources, please visit the Municipal Heritage Partnership Program website. We are available to assist your municipality.

  1. I’m glad to see the designations moving right along, including rural buildings such as Delburne Alberta Government Telephones Exchange Building.

    Hopefully you are receiving the news releases about the many exciting events in Battle River Country which are products of cooperation between communities and Association for Life-Wide Living whose mission is “Inspiring creativity for health through our landscape, our communities and the arts”. It is remarkable that the array of community-driven initiatives is so broad and lively.

    Continuing thanks for the interesting news that keeps coming!
