Lake Avenue West Wander
Our Lake Avenue West walking tour returns for 2017!
Some of the biggest business titans in town once lived on Lake Avenue West. Join us as we wander and meet the Nichols, Dunhams, Schwerdtfegers, McArthurs and Lavallees. Gentlemen and gamblers, lumbermen and lawyers - discover who lived in these stately homes on Lake Avenue. Our tour begins and ends (with snacks!) at the Farmers Market.
The Confederation Tour
Explore the riverfront industries of 1867 in this walk alongside the Mississippi River. Woolen, flour and lumber mills all flourished here and were run by water power. Along the way you’ll learn about the men behind the mills and their families that stayed to settle in Carleton Place.
Tickets are $10 each and available at the Museum, 267 Edmund Street.
