Discover the Rich History of Didsbury, Alberta
In the heart of Didsbury, Alberta, Canada, where the echoes of history resonate through every brick and street, Ulla-la Boutique stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of our beloved town. As we weave through the enchanting tapestry of Didsbury's past and present, let's celebrate the timeless charm that makes our community truly exceptional.
The Liesemer Block (where Ulla-La resides) was built in 1925 and shares façades with the neighboring Berscht store which was built at the same time. The original wood Boomtown structure on this site was also built for Liesemer (known as "W.G.") between 1901 and 1902. The store was destroyed by fire in 1908 and rebuilt in wood, only to burn again in the New Year's day fire of 1914. The store was rebuilt in 1915 using more fire resistant masonry construction in accordance with a new town by-law. This store burned down again in 1924. This has been the site of Builder's Hardware and Bogner's Hardware, Mountain View Sports and Ulla-La Boutique has been at this location since 2010.
