We have a few landmarks in Carleton Place. I have already written about our “Statue of Liberty” and have you visited our local Labyrinth? It may be not like the one in the film The Shining, but it is a lot of fun, and it’s all ours! Of course it its right behind our Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum.
After I looked up the history of William Street I came across some pretty ghastly history. What do you really know about William Street in Carleton Place?
“A Mr. Aitken, from Appleton way, used to leave town with his horses on the gallop down William Street, but they arrived at a more sedate pace on entering the town”.
Okay, that was a social note in our local Canadian paper in the late 1800’s but did you know that William Street had a lot of bad luck haunting it?
