Lacombe Flatiron Building
The Flatiron building in Lacombe was built in 1904 and served as the Merchants Bank of Canada until 1922 when it became home to the Bank of Montreal. For over a century, the infamous 'flatiron block' was home to many businesses in the community. Almost one hundred years after the building was erected, it was privately bought and renovated.
Today, the main floor and basement of this architectural landmark is home to an Interpretive Centre which showcases exhibits and displays illustrating aspects significant to the history of Lacombe. The exhibits are organized by the Lacombe & District Historical Society. The Flatiron Building is operated by Lacombe Regional Tourism and provides tourism information about the region.
