Mission is a historical community that lies along the Elbow River. Before it was a part of Calgary, this area was the site of a Catholic mission constructed in the 1860s. In 1899, it was incorporated as an independent village called the Village of Rouleaville. Finally, in 1907, the area was annexed into the city of Calgary and became the beloved community of Mission. Although the St. Mary Cathedral and a small number of 100-year-old character homes remain as reminders of this rich history, Mission has become a highly modern area of the city and a hugely popular place to live.
