Perrenoud Homestead

The Perrenoud Homestead is located just north of the town of Cochrane, Alberta. Designated as a provincial heritage site in 1992, the heritage value of the Perrenoud Homestead lies within its link to the establishment of early ranching operations in Alberta in the 1880s and 1890s. Brought to the area in a wave of settlement encouraged by grazing leases in the late 1800s, the homestead was built by Charles Perrenoud who emigrated to Canada from France in 1886 and established his horse ranching operation alongside his brother Earnest. In recent years the original homestead started to collapse. Due to safety concerns, the homestead was dismantled and placed into storage in 2017. This is a decimated point cloud of the Perrenoud Homestead.
