Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum Doors Open Carleton Place

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.
