It wasn’t just the people of Carleton Place who left their mark on the town. The many horses that once frequented Carleton Place with their owners also left behind evidence of their importance with public water troughs.
Do you know where the last two water troughs are today?

One is on Bridge Street and there is another one in the gorgeous oasis maintained by the Horticultural Society right next to the Museum and the Labyrinth. Great place for a coffee break or lunch. More about that this week!

Did you know that we had fantastic horse shows in Riverside Park every year? People came for miles!
