C.J. Bennington Fine Art Photography | Coutts Centre for Western Heritage

A few kilometers northeast of Nanton, AB is one of the most beautiful secret gardens you will ever hope to find. It's not meant to be a secret but given the few number of people who know of it's existence it would seem that way.

The garden was created at the behest of Jim Coutts, by his garden architect, Beryl West. Together they planned and she implemented the plan into the wonderfully idyllic retreat that it is today.

In 2013 Jim Coutts bequeathed the property to the University of Lethbridge directing it to be called the Coutts Centre for Western Heritage and it is now open for one and all to experience and enjoy.
