We went for a walk this morning at Centenial Park and went into the boathouse. I was amazed at what great shape the building is in. There was very little graffiti and no damage which is amazing but it is off the regular path.Also read- Before and After at Centennial Park

From 1985-1987 it dragged on. I counted at least 15 news articles maybe more. I will just let you read the articles and this back and forth is now documented for posterity.

This is the boathouse from one of my very favourite places Boldt Castle. There are a few boathouses on the Mississippi River, but yesterday the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum posted one great picture on their Facebook page. While I am hesitant to post a naked picture of Horace Brown like they did last week on Facebook- I think I can safely post this without comment.

This picture is of the Box family’s Boat House that was located on the river across the street from 37 Bell St. Robert E. Box married Jemima Muirhead and raised 5 sons and a daughter in their family home located at 240 James St. Four of the boys became dentists, while the other son had a successful career in banking and the daughter graduated Nursing school- Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum

So what does it look like now? I think it was just about here on Bell Street below the St. James Park.
