Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers Limited Doors Open Carleton Place

Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers Limited

Constructed in 1890 of local limestone, this building contained the roundhouse and engine repair shops for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) until 1939. In 1940, the building was purchased by the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers. Wool arrives here from across the country and is graded before being shipped out in compact bales. See CPR memorabilia on display throughout the building.
