Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum

Erected as the first Carleton Place Town Hall, this imposing limestone building now houses the local museum, with exhibits chronicling the town’s history. Originally containing council chambers, a lock-up and public auditorium, it was converted into a four-room school in 1879 and served the community until 1969. Bring a picnic and enjoy the Community Labyrinth and Victoria School Gardens!
