Langdon Community Overview

Langdon is a hamlet in Alberta, Canada. It is located 16 kilometers (10 mi) east of the City of Calgary, at an elevation of 1,005 meters (3,297 ft).

It is found along Highway 560 (Glenmore Trail), and Highway 22X also leads to Langdon. The hamlet is located in census division No. 6 and in the federal riding of Crowfoot. It is administered by Rocky View MD

Langdon is one of the fastest growing hamlets in the Calgary Region and Alberta with a population of approximately 2,400 in 2006.

Langdon was named for R.B. Langdon of Langdon & Shepard, Canadian Pacific Railway subcontracting firm who built a section of the line just east of Calgary. Both the Langdon and Shepard stations took their names from these men. Langdon was one of two people to turn the first sod in the settlement in 1882. A year later, a railway station was set up in a boxcar and named after him.

A post office was established in January 1, 1890.

The community of Langdon became known as the "good luck town" because in the twenty-five years between 1883 and 1908, there was not one death. It was also considered lucky because it was situated on the railroad's horseshoe shaped turnaround.

After a long period of stagnation, Langdon began to grow again in the 1990s and 2000s, with a number of major residential developments under way. This is due to its proximity to Calgary, and like other towns near Calgary, it is becoming a bedroom community.

A new commercial development currently under construction is being designed as a reconstruction of the way Langdon's main street looked in 1908..
