Mill Street as it appeared in 1889. This land was first purchased by a Mr. Coleman from the Morphy family in 1820. In 1822, Hugh Boulton purchased it and finished construction. The mill was later owned by Horace Brown as a flour mill. On the left-hand side are buildings used for the Boulton-Brown Grist Mill, and on the right-hand side is the residence of Horace Brown, grandfather of A.

Robert Hawkins-Feduke– Again Linda, I thank you for keeping our local history alive and available to a new generation who may not be unaware of the people and events that shaped our community and indeed the country as a whole. When D’Alton Coleman was President and Chairman of the Board of the CPR, it was one of the largest employers in the country and one of the largest international transportation firms. He never forgot his childhood home and was always willing to meet railroaders from Carleton Place, should they be visiting Montreal.
