Did you know that prior to 1923, anyone taking the train in Carleton Place would have left from this station? It was known as the Carleton Junction and was located on Franktown Road, right where Tim Horton’s is today. The stone station across the street that’s now the home of The Ginger Cafe was not built until 1923. The Mystery Streets of Carleton Place– Where was the First Train Station?

I will keep adding to this as I go through my newspaper archives.

Marge Mitchell —My Aunt lived on Judson Street and the train tracks were about 60 feet from her house…there were so many trains whizzing by everyday. We loved seeing them and ran up to the station and sat on the benches and watched these mighty iron beasts. Such a fabulous memory of old time Carleton Place.

These were ribbons my Great Uncle Stu won over the years at different fairs with his horses. This picture was taken in 1974, and I think it was in the back porch on Thomas Street. Read more here.

People are very proud of their local history, but don’t always express how much they value a place until it’s threatened. Because it adds character and distinctiveness to an area, heritage is a fundamental in creating a ‘sense of place’ for a community.

Tom Edwards has taken the time to dig out old photos and ephemera and now we have it documented for life. If you have old photos or thoughts please send them to me at sav_77@yahoo.com so we can have them for all to see at the touch of the fingertip.
