Documenting  60 Moore Street Carleton Place

Jayne GrahamThis was my great grandparents home (Lorne and Jennie Campbell) in Carleton Place. I don’t know when they purchased the home. My parents (Cam and Janet Hughes) lived on one side when I was born in 1963. The house caught on fire I think that year.

When my great grandmother went into what was then called the Lake Avenue Nursing Home, my grandparents Cora (her daughter) and Harold Hughes became the owners. My mom and dad returned to Carleton Place in 1979 and we did some renovations on the house. The house was hit by a car that year when an intoxicated man driving a stolen taxi from Traffords two doors up hit the right hand side in the front.

After my dad died in May 1980, my mom moved from the house to London and my grandparents sold the home. Unfortunately it has never looked the same as I remember growing up. My great grandmother had beautiful roses in the backyard as well as rose bushes growing up the side of what was a lovely front porch.
