From the Belly of the Findlay Plant….




Thanks to Norma Ford the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum now has a movie about the Findlay Plant. Please come and enjoy this silent film display about our local Findlay plant and relive what Carleton Place was built on through the ages. As Wendy LeBlanc said:  ‘David Whiteley’s fabulously creative display unit around the movie. Both are must sees. Bring the family and live their the history!’



The Carleton Place Beckwith and Hertiage Museum is open SEVEN days a week: Monday through Saturday 1 – 4pm and on Sundays from 1 – 4pm. So yes, visit us this afternoon and also come see the memories of Annie E. Duff.
