UPDATE ON HERITAGE DAY DINNER New Date! Wednesday, February 20 We thank you for your understanding as we were forced to cancel our Heritage Day Dinner due to weather. It’s always a tough decision, and we were certainly disappointed. If you have tickets, we have rescheduled the dinner to Wednesday, February 20th, 6 pm, at the Carleton Place Town Hall. (Same time, same place!) For those who hadn't yet purchased your tickets, it's not too late! We sure hope you are available that evening and able to join us as we celebrate out history and raise some much-needed funds for the Museum and Historical Society! Get ready for a fun show, some history lessons, prizes, fabulous silent auction items, and great food with friendly people! If you are unable to join us, we can certainly provide you with a full refund. Perhaps you might consider your ticket purchase as a donation to the Historical Society? If so, we will provide you with a tax receipt for the full amount. We’ll need to know how many people to expect, so please RSVP by email email@example.com or call us at 613-253-7013 as soon as possible! Thanks once again for your understanding!
Welcome to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum. Erected in 1872, this heritage designated building served the community of Carleton Place as the Town Hall and lock up until 1879, and as Victoria School ) for 90 years until 1969.
The museum is run by the Carleton Place and Beckwith Historical Society with assistance from the Town of Carleton Place and the Township of Beckwith. Opening as the Victoria School Museum in 1985, the name was changed in 2011 to reflect the scope of its collection and its audience.
Our main floor exhibit gallery features permanent exhibits telling the story of settlement in the area and chronicalling the town's history. Twice yearly we present temporary, themed displays, and the artifact cases in the foyer change more often to reflect current interests.
Come and visit our displays and chat with our knowledgeable staff and volunteers. Attend one of our events! Join a guided walking tour in the summer months! History is alive and well at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum!
