Thursday’s opening also provided a glimpse back at some of Calgary’s military history. The Inn on Officers’ Garden is incorporated within the 1935 historic officer’s mess at Currie Barracks. The facility, at 150 Dieppe Drive S.W., will provide a social hub for the community of Currie, along with upscale suites, dining options and space for special events, weddings and corporate meetings.

The Inn is part of Currie Green, a Statesman three-phase aging-in-place condominium community.
