the hart house

from the hart foundation, bret hart posted in pro wrestling by prof_improbable

This house, originally built in 1902, has 22 rooms, four fireplaces and 5 chandeliers- but the main feature is the dungeon in the basement.

Purchased by Stu Hart in 1951, the amateur wrestler and promoter turned the basement of the house into a wrestling training center. The Hart Family Dungeon became the center of Stampede Wrestling (Stu's wrestling company) and a legendary wrestling school.

The house was sold by the remaining Hart siblings after Stu's death in 2003, and it was declared a municipal heritage site by the city of Calgary in 2012.
