Each year the Museum's chooses a local business to feature in the summer exhibit, and then a store-front display is created to resemble the original store's appearance. This year we are featuring not one store, but multiple grocery stores that were well-established within the town's history. Various photographs of these grocery stores, such as Argue's, Hughe's, Edwards, and CW Moore, are found within the display, along with typical food packaging products that would have been found on the shelves of such grocery stores.
Part of our display is our "Then and Now" interactive magnet map. You can match up old photographs of local businesses that were open in Carleton Place circa 1930 to their location on our map. You will be amazed at how many locations have changed in 80 years!
