Annual Heritage Dinner - SOLD OUT
“The Grandest Hotel”
The Mississippi Hotel was built by local businessman Napoleon Lavallee in 1872 and soon claimed to be “… the grandest hotel in the Ottawa Valley…”
Fittingly, this beautiful stone landmark recently reopened as “The Grand Hotel” and once again welcomes visitors arriving to Carleton Place in grand style.
Join us on Thursday, February 22 , 6 pm at the Grand Hotel for our annual fundraising Heritage Dinner. This year we look back at the history of this hotel and celebrate its renewal. Archivist Andrew Elliott from Library and Archives Canada will examine Lavallee’s claim of “grandness”, and together with author Elwood Jones, will take us back to the heyday of grand hotels in Ontario.
A tax receipt for $15 will be issued.
The evening will include a three course meal, live musical entertainment by George Chenier Sr., and a silent auction table full of fabulous items. Don’t miss this grand evening!
The Grand Hotel is located at 7 Bridge Street in Carleton Place. www.thegrandhotelcp.ca/
All proceeds raised enable the Society's continuing support of the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, their exhibitions, programming and public education events. This is our major fundraising event of the year.
