Saving Carleton Place’s Past — Thank You Brenda Mattey!


Together we all work together to save bits and piece of Carleton Place’s past. The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum is always happy to receive donations, especially old photographs– because sometimes by examining the background of old photos we can always learn more about “what was what” in Carleton Place.


We would like to thank Brenda Mattey for her donation of the old Carleton Place theatre seats to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Museum. Thanks Brenda who is modelling one of my designs/ hats with her father.
