Doing some research for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum today found me at the Land Registry Offices in Almonte. There were a lot of pages printed out while getting information for a home on High Street that we might not have needed, but there was an interesting entry or two.
It mentioned the Willis burial plot on Lake Ave West , but a certain land transaction from 1892 to 1896 between the Crams, Sumners and Pattersons mentioned caves. This was not in the country, but in the town proper. Were they small limestone caves by the river?
“part described with use of caves”
Has anyone ever heard mention of caves in Carleton Place?
The treacherous and mysterious underwater caves in the Ottawa Valley just got bought
Would they be the ones at Bates & Innes, by the water? Not big enough for adults, just cubby holes for kids, about 12 years size.
Valerie… not sure… but I just added a story above.. seems caves around limestone is common

Spent most summer days on or around the river either fishing or swimming when I was a little kid. I don’t recall any caves.
