  1. Thank you for making the history of Carleton Place come alive to me. I was not born here, but have lived here for 30 years, and it is truly amazing to see the story of this community unfold, with more than just names/dates/births/deaths.

    Question though… in behind the the current 523 colours building on Hwy # 29 there is a forest park. In this dense forest there are the ruins of an old building. would there also be a story about this?

    • I’m glad you are enjoying Howard Brown’s columns. They do indeed bring the history of Carleton Place and area alive. Although I’m not familiar with the ruins you have indicated, I will keep your question in the back of my mind as I add more of Mr. Brown’s historical accounts to the blog. Someone, someplace will know about these ruins. Thanks again for your comments. Shirley
