The Anglican Church in Carleton Place was served for a few years from Franktown– one of the original rectories by Royal patent. In 1883 it was made the centre of a new mission and Rev. E J Boswell was the first missionary. During his incumbency, the first St. James church was built. There were originally unshapely masses of windows and galleries of the early Canadian order of architecture. The unattractive structure was replaced in 1881/1884 with a seating capacity of 500. The following year the debt was paid off. In 1887 there were 256 families and a bible class with 300 names on the roll. Mr Brice McNeeely Jr. (his father owned the tannery)was the superintendent.

Elliot Hall was named after Canon Elliot. It was built across the street in 1923 on land originally used by the Canada Lumber Co. Across the street is St. James Park which was once home to the other half of the Canada Lumber Co and the proposed site of the Rosamond Woolen Mill. Carleton Place was once going to host the Rosamond Woolen Mills before the owner had a disagreement with an early village council. Angry, he moved his mill lock stock and barrel to Almonte, where in turn, the Penman Mill owners argued with Almonte’s town council, and they moved to Paris, Ontario.The Canada Lumber Co. was torn down in 1908 and a hydro electric dam was built there. The hydro dam was removed in 1973.

Guide to Church Services in 1870 in Carleton Place:

St. James’ (Church of England) – ½ past 10 o’clock a.m. on each alternate Sabbath, and at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on the other Sabbath.  St. Andrew’s  (Church of Scotland) – 11 o’clock a.m. every Sabbath.  Zion Church (Canada Presbyterian) – ½ 2 o’clock p.m. every Sabbath.  Reform Presbyterian – 11 o’clock a.m., and 3 o’clock p.m., on alternate Sabbaths.  Wesleyan Methodist – ½ past 10 o’clock on alternate Sabbaths, and ½ past 6 o’clock on the other Sabbath.  Baptist – ½ past 2 o’clock every Sabbath.  Roman Catholic – occasionally, of which notice will be given.

John Edwards This was the first sale of land of “The Clergy Reserve”. It was originally 200 acres of land running from Ramsay 7 to Ramsay 8. It was the historic land allocated to the Church of England by Crown. Whne the Clergy Reserves were abolished in the 1850’s, St. James Anglican Church purchased the land for 100 British pounds. It was and is home to massive white pines which are still the defining element of the CP ‘skyline’ when the sun sets in the West. One only need to look up.

St James Anglican Church presently offers twice-weekly Eucharist services, weekly youth group and Bible studies, several women’s groups, a variety of youth activities, a choir, and an ever-expanding Outreach program to help the less fortunate in other parts of the world.

Hawthorn Mill Houses on Emily Street ????– Erin Mills

Hawthorn Mill Houses on Emily Street ????– Erin Mills

Heather Lalonde and I often chat about our two houses trying to figure out the history and story behind them. What would you recommend to get some information about these 2 places, I known there’s a story somewhere! I also spoke to the neighbour at the other side of Heather who is closer to the mill ( Robin and Adin ) All to say that perhaps these little houses on Emily street have a connection to the mill.

The very end house was on a map of the mill in 1872. Bill and Judy’s house across from us was Hughes Saw Mill. I love that you share this historical work, really shows a labour of love. If you have any information on 90 Emily or Heather’s house (think she is 92?) Please let me know. Erin Mills

Who You Gonna Call??? 211!!

Last week I got a few emails from Mother’s looking for snowsuits for their kids. I sent a lot of emails and just couldn’t seem to find an answer for someone that needed it right away. Thankfully, someone on Carleton Place Moms ( Facebook) directed me to the Baptist Church where they were giving away warm clothing the next day.

I had never been asked that question before and I wanted to be able to give out a better answer faster than I did that night. I thought about starting a list and United Way East Regional Director Fraser Scantlebury told me  it would be defeating the purpose as things would be come obsolete the day after I listed them because things change so fast. He was right, and it would be the last thing I want.

Got a question about any social issue? Ontario 211 is a free helpline that connects you to community and social services in your area 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in over 150 languages. From basic needs like housing and food, to support for seniors and children, to responding to crisis situations, 211 is there.

They will help you with essential community and social services, such as financial assistance programs, health clinics, or counselling services and the list goes on and on. So if I had called them about where to get a snowsuit or a free lunch 211 a real person, not a recorded voice, that would have helped me out.

Call 211 or email  https://211ontario.ca/

United Way is a proud founding partner of 211 in Canada, providing funding and support for the program, and working to make its services available to all Canadians.

 

 

 

Help Us Identify This Couple- “The Good People of Lanark County”

Help Us Identify This Couple- “The Good People of Lanark County”

d3cc57540dbc9cfaa90af1a7c85aaede--pay-it-forward-ideas-pay-it-forward-quotes.jpg

If you want to lift yourself up, lift someone else up they say. After I had my heart attack, the good people of Lanark County were so supportive of me. It has not been easy for me these past few months, but I insisted on keeping my writing up and specifically wrote about my heart attacks and strokes so others would see we all go through things. Because of all you I didn’t give up on bad days. You have no idea what you did for me.

There are many good folk in Lanark County that ask not for thanks, but when we hear about them they inspire us like Peter Porteous. You seldom see these folks in the newspapers– but I want to make sure they are recognized. If even just a few words, they need pats on the back and gold stars.

I had no idea how many people felt the same way and the other day I received a lovely note from Paula Theriault.

Hi Linda,

After reading your article about Peter Porteous, more specifically, your comment about people working behind the scenes, a couple people came to mind.  Both these individuals I met by chance, and you being a long time resident may know of them and their good works but, no one I’ve talked to has. So as said, your article brought them to mind.

This lady’s name unfortunately has slipped my mind. However, I’m sure you can find out. They live on Napoleon street, just a few houses up towards the highway from the 4 way stop at Arthur St.

I met this lady when I became curious about her front yard vegetable garden. I took a chance and knocked on her door to see if I could look closer at the garden. Her husband answered and invited me into their backyard to meet his wife. I learned that teenagers had planted the front garden with the directions of a farmer friend. They also invite these and other teens into their home for conversation and a meal throughout the winter

Their backyard is beautiful. They are continuing to develop it into a place of peace and relaxation that local seniors might enjoy.  All these things they do as a way to “pay it forward’ and share happiness–Paula Theriault

authorsnote)

So I have no idea who these people are. Can someone help me so we can put a name to these good folks and add them to “The Good People of Lanark County” and give them the gold star of kindness.

Thanks!

Last week Carleton Place did their Carleton Place Cares benefit for Fort McMurray. JUNE 24TH– Almonte is doing a benefit and I think this is a great time to visit the neighbours and help some more! Carleton Place raised over $12,000- let’s help them exceed that amount!

For most of us, watching the devastation that happened in Alberta was something short of a horror movie. For some though, it was their reality. A reality that will take a long time to recover from – emotionally and financially. As always, our local musicians have banded together to help. Join us for an evening of exceptional music in efforts to help raise some money to help with their journey.

As always, Valley Heritage radio is on hand to help their community. Thank you Jason Marshall, Christa Pare and Mike Cloutier for MC ing. I think we can squeeze a song out of Mike and Christa with Jason on Kazoo! Amazing talents from Jamie and Jeff McMunn, Arleen Quinn, Unwound, Ottawa Valley Country music hall of famers, Dale Ducharme, Mike Hamelin, Rodger Coulombe and Brian Ostrom. Doug and Pam Champagne, George Allen Chenier SR, Johnny and Jack Spinks, Maureen Young, Chris Metcalfe, Marc Gossett, Theresa Bennet Scott, Gord Barnes, and Cooper Street.

You don’t want to miss this show! $10.00 per person, all proceeds going to help!
