Need Information About 82 Park Ave in Carleton Place

Standard

They say that this log house was moved from another location to 82 Park Ave in Carleton Place location in 1930. We think it was upgraded with siding in the 1950.  So now we are obviously curious to find out where the house was ORIGINALLY situated, i.e. where it was moved FROM.  I’m guessing the house may have had to have been moved because a street was going through the land, or some other reason.
This little house has had a long list of owners–but what one historian who is searching for records for this house and myself have learned from previous experience is: that the land records for small lots in Carleton Place are a mess.

Thanks!
Some info we just have received from Linda Gallipeau-Johnston
Linda, the lady that lived there when I was a kid was Freda Snedden – she was Freda Perry married to Ivan Perry – she now lives in the retirement home across from the High School – I remember it as a log home. Ross and Brian Trimble are her nephews who lived across the street back then and Granny Perry (Ivan’s mother?) lived right beside. They later moved down to Lake Ave in the 80’s.

Come and visit the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page– what’s there? Cool old photos–and lots of things interesting to read.

  2. My name is Judy Armitage, I lived in this house until the summer of 2011.
    The Landlord’s name was Bruce Drummond of Carleton Place, I think he knows of this houses past!

    • Judith.. have some questions for you.. Thanks again Linda.
      I don’t have Judith’s email address but I would like to ask her a couple of questions.

      Yesterday I went to to look at the inside of the house because it is for sale. I found the upstairs quite odd as it appears the bedroom floors were raised.
      Looking into the bedroom closet you were looking down a step of at least 6 inches. The hallway leading to the bathroom is on such a downward slope I found it almost
      dizzying (but the clawfoot tub is still there). Do you remember the raised floors, and the downward slope of the hallway? Do you know what the reasons for this would be?
      I also found the upstairs floor awfully uneven, and I was wondering if it were due to log beams… I am just trying to figure out what is ‘normal’ for the house.
      Thank you very much

  3. My husband who grew up in the neighborhood, remembers when the log house was moved on to that lot, so it was later than the 1930’s. He said the lot belonged to Ivan Perry’s father, who lived next door. He can’t remember the year unfortunately. The Trimble family might be able to give you some information.
