Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum

Erected in 1872 as the Carleton Place Town Hall, this limestone building now houses the local museum. Originally containing council chambers, a lock-up and a public auditorium, it was converted into a school in 1879, which served the community until 1969. The main floor galleries feature exhibits chronicling the town's history. Also see the Community Labyrinth and Victoria School Gardens.
