You might look at the picture we have submitted for Airdrie and think to yourself, “Why haven’t I seen or heard of this place before?”  Well, chances are you have heard of Calgary and Airdrie is the suburbs for Calgary.  You might think of it as a separate town considering its 20 miles from downtown Calgary but really there is only 5 miles of farmland in between Calgary and Airdrie.   You just have to head north on Calgary-Edmonton Corridor Highway and the first town you will encounter Airdrie first.    It is considered a bedroom community and industrial centre.  They have a local bus system with Airdrie Transit along with a bus system that connects Airdrie with Calgary (InterCity Express or ICE).  The town was established back in the late 1880′s when the Calgary and Edmonton Railway was being established.  The original buildings were all railway buildings until 1901 when farmhouses started popping up.
