Tom EdwardsTed Hurdis He should have been President of the BIA. Never was outta stock and kept his clientele very happy.

David Munro199 For a house in Happy Valley ? 

Dan WilliamsDavid Munro Yeah it’s a lot but it’s a historical building!

Dan WilliamsWhen my son visited Art he told him that he was the 3rd generation of our family he had served! I played a lot of golf with Art and he told me a lot of stories and had some awesome one liners. He was great fun to play with.

Cate JohnsonI recognize that house from years gone by LOL. Like Tom, just inside the back door

Karen RobertsonNext door to where I grew up. If that house could talk.

Dan WilliamsI’m pretty sure Sparky Gilbeau told me the house was gone. Maybe he can help.

Bonnie MitchellDan Williams oh, it’s still there! Ive seen it recently. (I also lived next door growing up)

Happy Valley in Carleton Place–

So, we have read about an area around Santiago Street called Chiselville in the 1800s a few months ago. But where was Happy Valley? Well chances are if you talk to someone who has lived her a spell, they will tell you that Happy Valley was just off Townline Street in the Lanark and Carleton Street area, where you could get yourself some illegal beverages no questions asked.

I am still waiting for some stories to come out of the locals to write about this area–so if you know of any stories about the white lightening of Carleton Place do tell please. I am all ears!
